Are metal bobbins better than plastic?
Unfortunately, you should not do that. The rule of thumb for bobbins is that metal ones are for metal bobbin cases and plastic ones are for plastic bobbin cases. If you try to place a metal bobbin in a plastic bobbin case you may see that the bobbin case wears out a lot faster than it is supposed to.
Do all bobbins fit all sewing machines?
There is no such thing as a universal bobbin, meaning no single bobbin will fit every sewing machine. Some sewing machines tolerate a slightly different bobbin better than others, but using the incorrect bobbin will most likely affect the stitch quality of your project, and could result in damage to your machine.
