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...

Great idea! I found this on Etsy to help spool some bulk wire that I bought. It attaches to my wife's sewing machine. He makes them in 2 sizes to fit various machines. ($10 plus shipping) I don't have any Pearsall's, so I don't need the extra bobbins, but that is an outstanding idea! I just need to find a source for spools. I went to Michael's and these work, but not exactly what I wanted.
