"On the bobbins: I chose the PVC core for the simple reason: To consistently drill a wooden core takes expensive bits and tools, well out of the reasonable price range. By using PVC, with turned wood ends, I get a stable size/diameter, with good rigidity in the length needed with light weight, and low cost. So, I can offer extra bobbins in packages, and sell them for $10, a price far lower than most makers extra bobbins."

That's the reason for the PVC bobbins
