They're probably cheap enough that you can buy it and see, but there's another way. You don't need a spool pin at all, and I never use mine. I put a coffee cup or Mason jar at the back on the right side, put the spool in it, and feed it from there.

Hi the spool holder on this machine is just a plastic rod with a slight taper and it just pushes into the hole. If the old piece is broken off in the hole, drill a very small hole in the centre of the broken piece and screw in a small wood-screw and pull it out with a pair of pliers

On the Featherweight, we have lost the post that holds the spool of thread. It is gone. Do you have such a replacement and if so, how much do they cost and can I install it myself?

On a featherweight the spool pin and cover are sold as one part.

All you need is a screwdriver to change it.

How to remove broken horizontal spool pin of Singer Sewing machine model 6550 and replace with new spool pin?

It appears to be just "hooked" on according to the photo, and you can get the replacement part for $4.00 using this link:

However, before you go to all that trouble, you can also just use the auxiliary spool pin used for twin needle sewing which came with your machine but can be purchased from the same site for about the same price.

I don't use either -- I just put the spool in a cup behind the machine and thread from there. See? One way or another, you're back in business!

I have a singer featherweight 11 117 model and the spool pin snapped. Where can I get a replacement?

First of all, it's likely at this point that you think your machine is unusable without it, but you're wrong. I have four Singer high-end sewing and embroidery machines, and it has been years since I used their spool pins.

Simply put a coffee cup or--my favorite--a lidless pint Mason Jar at the back of your sewing machine towards the right (away from the fabric side), bend the thread (don't wind the thread) around the remains of the spool pin to use it as a thread guide, and then thread the way you usually do, and you are in business!

Now, to address the replacement issue, there are several places where you can order a new one. Do a search on eBay for "Singer Featherweight Spool Pin" and a number of listings will come up. Don't put in your model number in the search box. If you see that a dealer is featuring one for a Featherweight, but not for your model, don't hesitate to use the "Ask a Question" option in a listing; these are generally quite knowledgeable dealers who can order one for you. Also Jenny's Sewing Studio and Sewing Parts Online either have them in stock or can order them for you. It appears that they are quite inexpensive too!

Replacement parts

You will need a parts list, and unfortunately, the Singer site doesn't list one. However, I would point out that there are two machines complete on eBay right now for $20.00.

However, there IS an alternative. Many experienced sewers don't use the spool pin anyway--we put the thread in a cup in the back of the machine and feed it in from there.

Singer quantum XL-150 how do i thread this machine?

All Singer models would have arrows/numbers to guide your top threading from the spool pin to top thread guide, for most machine start from your thread spool pin, to a thread guide follow arrow down then up into the take up lever and down to the needle thread guide then into the needle hole. Assuming you have wind and install the bobbin thread into the bobbin case, turn your hand wheel towards you makes the needle bar goes down,keep on turning till the needle bar is fully up again, pull the end of the top thread to pick out the bobbin/bottom thread. With your material/fabric under the presser feet, apply the presser feet lever down, you are ready to sew.

How do i replace the spool pin on my singer sewing machine model # 3314?

Two ways.. either put the new spool pin in the other extra hole to the left of the trap door on top OR take out the two bigger screws on the top cover that hold it in, also take off the knobs on the front sliders (patters selection) and remove the top over. Push the old pin out from the inside with nail or something simila and replace.. simple. Do you have an extra spool pin you can share?
