Hi Everyone!

Can anyone enlighten me as to why there are some differences in the shank length of these 206 needles? From left they are size 11, 14, 14, 16. For further information, all came in the classic old green-and-red with white border packaging, so I presume they are close in age ...

I'm having Needle Clinic today and polishing all my oldest needles to make them last another 100 years... : )

I'm wondering if the bigger sizes used a bigger shank for a longer portion of the needle?  AFAIK, there are no other machines except the 320 that would use that needle.  The 320 is the free-arm version of the 319.

Yeah, I think that makes sense Ericka -- thicker needle with longer shank (though 14 comes in both shank sizes apparently...)
I'm sure someone here knows the history or has a story....
