Now well and truly into the dark days, the endless grey outside, I have yet again explored the sewing machine light issue. You may well recall past comments.
I do have a daylight bulb as the main bulb in the room
This light I hung behind the machine - no real use
This bottom one is my sewing machine light
the top was sold as a Pygmy daylight bulb - yeah right
And there was the saga of Phillips telling me they didn't make little bulbs
- errrr what's this then with your name on it
I love my battery/mains Ottlite
but no room to use, get right angles on the sewing machine
There was another LED light which I variously tied to me or the machine
- limited success.
Then came a swivel head, tap to work, stick anywhere LED light
couldn't find a good place to stick it!
That's it, give up, nothing for it, stop mucking about.
Finally, bought the made for purpose light
Guess what? Its brilliant, in every sense!
Choose this one with round head, as it has a longer stalk and
two fittings to enable location move. Electric.
Moral of the story
Buy the tool for the job in the first place
Also why constantly fight bobbin tails everywhere?
So I bought a new bobbin holder which supposedly keeps
everything in check.
Yet to be tested
Job for today seems like as its dullsville here.
I suspect, some problems really can be solved by throwing money at it
.... as opposed to throwing money away in the trying.
