Needles with Round Shank
Fit a Davis Vertical Feed High Arm and Other Sewing Machines
Pack of 10 needles
Size 80/12 is a slightly thinner needle than size 90/14.
Choose the size best for your sewing project.
Will come with directions for setting the needle on a Davis high arm since the early machine has no needle stop. If a needle is not set correctly your machine will not stitch.
My early high arm machine loved this needle. Before finding this needle I had to cheat down a 20x1 needle and it was not long enough to grip well. This needle is almost 2 inches long, long enough to go beyond the needle clamp as shown in the 3rd photo.
To set the needle, loosen needle clamp screw. Hold the needle between the thumb and first finger of the left hand, and pass the point down through the slot in the throat plate. Pass the shank up through the hole in the needle yoke, long groove of needle faces left, see 4th photo for parts of a needle. Insert needle till about 1/8 of an inch shows above the needle yoke. Tighten needle clamp screw.
Run a fingernail along the long groove to be sure it is facing left as you are seated in front of the machine.
Thread needle left to right.
The needle eye must be at the correct location for a thread loop to be made at the correct time for the tip of the shuttle to enter loop and form a stitch. My book explains the relationship even more.
