Spool pin is usually on the top Right hand side of the machine. It is sometimes not clearly visible (it looks like a small metal rod protuding out, but not long enough to hold your thread). You will have to pull it up so that it extended and then you can use it.

Extra spool pin for Brother Super Ace Machine for twin sewing

You can search for the part online:

Make Model spool pin

or, if you are creative, make your own. Some people put a small wooden dowel on a heavy base and just set it behind the machine. There are also stand-alone spool holders that you can purchase online.

Hello i have just obtained a Hasqvarna 3600 and the cotton spool pin has been pusged too far down and i can't get it out. Does anyone know how to pull it out? Please

If it has not been pushed all the way down so part of it is still projecting above the machine, you can cut a piece of plastic drinking straw and place it over the spool pin. This works very well for those extra large spools that are too tall for the spool pin. In some instances, some people simply place the thread spool in a cup or jar on the table to the right and behind the machine. Or, create a spool pin with a wooden dowel attached to a flat surface.

Otherwise, the pin may need to be replaced and repaired by a technician. But, you can get by without a spool pin on the machine.

How i use twin needel

Although your machine does come with a second spool pin to allow two spools of thread, it does not come with a button or setting for a twin needle. You can probably put one on, but I must caution you that you can only straight stitch on it, because if you try even a narrow zigzag, its likely that one of the two needles will hit the plate and break, and they are expensive.

If you want to try it, I can tell you that you need to buy a twin needle--preferably one with the two needles close together. Put one spool in its regular pin, and the other on the extra spool pin, and thread both threads exactly the same, and at the same time. You will not be able t use a needle threader--you will have to thread them by hand.

Spool pin loose- always dropping off

Do you have it extended all of the way? You have to pull up on the spool pin to put your thread spool on.

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?

LS 2125i haveing problems getting the top thread

I don't know about now, but in the old days you had to pull out about three inches of thread through the eye of the needle & hold it with plenty of slack while turning the wheel on the end of the machine slowly. Once the needle disappeared below the plate & then reappeared you could stop turning the wheel & slowly pull on the end of the thread you are holding to pull the thread from the bobbin up. Of course there must be thread on the bobbin spool & it must be some extra hanging out. (not broken off flush with the spool)

Thread constantly wraps around spool pin

Cut a round curcle of fabric the size of the spool from a piece of felt. Put a hole in the middle and put it under the spool of thread. If this does not work you can purchase a small net that fits over the spool. It is designed to keep the thread from coming off the spool except for being pulled through naturally.
Hope this works.
