Metal Bobbin?
Diane Staggs | May 08, 2012

Good Value, Great Features

I was rather disappointed when I tried to sew with my new Singer. The timing and bottom tension were both off and upon taking the machine to a repair shop as Singer told me too, I found that the metal bobbin was one of the big problems. Also, I find the light rather dim and have to use a suppemental light to see. After repair and the plastic bobbin, I am happy for the most part in how the machine performs. I would be most happy if Singer were to send me 29 plastic bobbins, #15 J, to replace the metal ones that came with the machine. A little more information on how to use the circular sewing would be helpful. I find that it takes a rather stiff material to be able to sew circles without it bunching up. I also found that the machine does not sew through levi seams as the presser foot does not stay level.

The machine came with alot of extras but their not as easy to use as shown on tv ( I should have known) The lighting is really dim and I'm having trouble with the bobbin catching - needle threader doesn't line up with the needle so it's just easier to thread the needle myself then fighting with it. Hopefully practice make perfect

My Heavy Duty

Good Value, Available Extension Table
Low End Needle Threader

I have wanted a Singer Heavy Duty for a while and when the new one came out I had to get it. The main selling points on this machine are not even the rock solid mechanism or the new stitches. I really got the machine for the extension table! This should be a MUST for every Singer from here on out! The sewing machines we all remember from Singer were at the level of the table, making it much easier to maneuver the projects around. Now with all of the tabletop machines it makes it a definite selling point to have such a large sewing surface available.

5532 Heavy Duty

Just finished using my new 5532 for the first time. It runs just fine but is a bit noisy. Disappointed that the light is quite dim so I need supplemental lighting to see well. I look forward to trying the decorative stitches.
