Ok, so I've got more than a few.  I really don't know what machines a lot of these go to - some are obvious, as they are labeled.  Some are sizes I know nothing about.  There are quite a few industrial sized ones....and then there are my cute needle tins which have varying numbers of needles still left in them!  I'm certainly not looking to part with them all, but I'll gladly share if anyone has a special need.  I thought maybe you all would like to see them all!

I'd be all over those 20 X 1s, but its simple enough to make a 15 X 1 work in its place.

Which machine takes 20 X 1?

Hilltophomesteader,

I think the 20 X 1 are comparable to the Davis Long (but I'm not sure of that) -- I'll check my ISMACS Needle Reference -- I have a Minnesota Model A to deliver to my cousin -- and it does take a 20X1, according to ISMACS.  I have a few (but not many) for her.

I *think* my 1917 New Home took those needles, it seems to me that's what I bought for it from Jan Sabin at a TOGA a few years ago. I can't check it now, I sold it a few months ago.

127x1 = Singer 9W-7, W&W D9 and others.

20x1 =  Domestic, National, others.

16x231 = Industrial, but can be used as a substitute for 206x13 in the Singer 206, 306, 319 machines and probably others.

Of course I can use all of them as long as they're size 14, 16, or 18.

I love the old iron and wood machines. They're solid and reliable.

Beautiful collection.  I love the old packaging on many of them.  Much more classy than today's.

Some of the New Home machines use a 20x1 too.

I really like the needle tins I don't think I've seen any except the Boye.

I do, too, HelenAnn!  The Boye needle tin I found in an antique shop....a friend was liquidating her sister's collection of sewing notions and had the empty drawer/cabinet underneath it.  She didn't know what it was.....but I did, lol!  I found the other tins and the oak/dovetailed New Home needle box surfing Ebay, lol.  I'm sure I've got WAY more needles than I'll ever need!
