Q: How do I know which size spool cap and why I should use them on my Janome Sewing Machine?


A: Traditional size spools require the large spool cap, it needs to be larger in diameter than the thread spool. Thinner spools require the small cap cover, the spool cap cover should be the closest size but always LARGER in diameter than the spool, and yet not too large as to effect thread delivery. When using metallic threads, you may want to stand the spool on the auxiliary spool pin or on an optional   thread stand, with the large spool cap underneath the spool,

Spool cap covers prevent thread from catching in the spool notch and assure even delivery of thread.
