a tapered metal pin to fit into the bobbins and a plumbing washer drilled to fit enabled me to spin up the silk with my variable speed drill...
A drill bit with masking tape wrapped around it is a less elegant, but cheaper and probably faster solution.

My wife held the pencil for two Hardy Ultralite 4000's for new backing, Lazer line and Commando head, only because one of them was hers.

If anyone runs across a sub for Pearsall's 6A, post it up please. Carl did an amazing job researching the color subs for every color I normally use, except 6A.

I believe that YLI #216 should be close to Pearsall Hot Orange #19 and YLI #231 should be close to Pearsall #6a.

Thanks, Bob. I was looking at that YLI 231, but only on the computer. Appreciate the heads up.

"If anyone runs across a sub for Pearsall's 6A, post it up please. Carl did an amazing job researching the color subs for every color I normally use, except 6A."

If you still need an answer, the cross-reference file I'm compiling shows YLI 231.

p.s. I see you got an earlier reply. :)

I'm trying to cross-reference Pearsall's/YLI/Kimono/Ephemera. No color charts just names and numbers.

I'll forward a copy when it is more complete

Hey, John, I have a spool of that YLI 231 in hand and it's a very close match, even when wet. It gets my vote.

Has anyone found a Kimono or YLI thread that works for Pearsalls 6b? Thanks

Doug,

Carl suggests Kimono #370 (Teriyaki) for Pearsall's 6b (Sherry Spinner). See his side-by-side picture comparison in the original post.

Thanks for the suggestion. I should have read this thread from the beginning. :? Feeling a little embarrassed.
