Tensioners for Bobbin Winding

Here are some pictures of "tensioners."  They're a small post with a springy part.  When you wind a bobbin, you need to wrap the thread all the way around the tensioner.  On most machines, it makes a "figure 8" as it wraps around.  If the thread doesn't go into the tensioner properly, you'll get a sloppy, loose bobbin.
