Item details

Size 120 VERY THICK Groz-Beckert brand needles for a Willcox & Gibbs chain stitch machine. Will work on other machines that use the same type of needle with a groove that is all the way up the shank of the needle.

If you are doing regular sewing then purchase the size 90 needles, these are specialty large needles and will leave large holes in fabric.

Listing of the size 90 needles is here:

Pack of 10 needles

These size 120 needles are comparable to the old Willcox & Gibbs size 6.
The size 90 needles are comparable to the old Willcox & Gibbs size 3.

To insert in machine slip point of needle down into needle hole, hold with long groove on left side and slide needle up most of the way on the shank then re-tighten needle clamp with the special Willcox & Gibbs needle wrench. If you are missing the needle wrench substitute with a 9/32 inch open ended common wrench.

I have a manual with extra information for a Willcox & Gibbs Automatic chain stitch machine available as an instant download PDF file here:

They will work very well in my Wilcox & Gibbs machine. The finishing touch for the display!

I had ordered a different size needle but received an email saying that I probably wanted this Size 120 needle instead based on my comments about what I wanted to use them for. That was very helpful.
