Occasionally, yes.  I don't have a Maru Dai (yet) and so I tend to follow the card method (or use an improvised maru dai).

Actually, I find the bobbins to be the surprisingly expensive part . . .

Where do you get your bobbins?  I cannot believe the prices I have seen online.

I've just improvised, using film canisters that I fill with something of weight.
