No the long piece of nuisance was at the needle end @HooliganHeart .  I ought to know more because I used the dam thing from about 15 to 21 at which time I got the super duper Brother with a zig zag stitch.  Actually when I think about it, it wasn't that long and then it went into a shiny shuttle cover.
You misunderstood me i think, i know you are speaking of the bobbin itself but to help identify the model of the machine, the position of the bobbin winder is relevant  :thumbsup:

No idea other than left of the handle and wheel.  I've looked at this video but it doesn't ring any bells and I must have done it but it doesn't ring any bells.

Do you remember if the bobbin winder drove off the belt or had a rubber tire on it and drove off the handwheel?

I've looked at few videos on this (whizzing through) and at a guess I would say a rubber wheel. I don't remember whether  you had to knock the machine out of gear to  do it.
