Question about Singer Sewing Machines
I've inherited a Singer 257 Fashion mate, but it looks like it needs a bobbin case, which one does fit? the manual doesn't show it very well at all. hate to buy the wrong thing.
SOURCE: bobbin rewind problems
Either the winder rubber is worn down one side, or the spindle has seized, take the top off and check and see if you can turn the winder by hand, if not then it has seized and the only way to free it is to put a couple of drops of WD40 on the spindle, put an electric drill on the end of the spindle and start the drill very slowly.

Make sure the bobbin case sets sort of on top and not under the ridge of the metal ring. There is a small latch on the upper left of the bobbin case. It is metal. rotate the latch to cover the bobbin case and this should stabilize the case without making it immobile
