This works great and just what I needed. It keeps the spool from scratching the machine.
Singer Featherweight 221 & 222 Spool Pin Red Disk. Fits Singer Featherweight Model 221 and 222.
These little Red Disks are used to reduce noise on spool cover while sewing in conjunction with Spool Pin Spring (sold separately). The red disk will also protect the paint on spool cover from spinning thread cones.
If you love using your Featherweight, two reasons might be her quiet and precise movement. Some might even say that the cadence of the Featherweight is hypnotic. We attribute these feelings to little tools like the Spool Pin Red Disk to enhance the experience of sewing on these vintage stitchers.
Not only does the Red Disks solve two issues in quietness and paint protection, but they also look cute! A Featherweight isn't complete without her "red hat".
