Needles

BREAKING NEEDLES? Make sure your needles are correctly offset?

Flat back of needle parallel to back of machine?

 

Schmetz 90/14 size Universal needles come loaded in the serger from the factory, other sizes of needles work, but not larger 90/14, and have you verified that both left and right are same exact size? (don't laugh, people do all kinds of things)       

 

Do not attempt to use Jeans or Denim needles in the serger.

 

Use the right needle for the right type and weight of fabric:

 

Universal Needles are for use with woven fabrics like quilting cottons, etc.

 

Stretch needles and jersey needles are used with knit fabrics.

 

You can download the Schmetz Needle app for handy use in your Android phone or tablet  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.schmetz.needle

 

Bulk needles can be purchased via Amazon.com, Wawak.com and HomeSew.com

 

 

Our Admin Karen Wood states: Universal needles are sharper than ballpoint, stretch or jersey needles. While our machines came with universal needles installed, they are NOT recommended for working with any type of knit. Ballpoint, stretch and jersey needles are more blunt and will go between the knit thread fibers helping to leave a clean hole as opposed to a tear. With universal needles being very sharp, they will have a tendency to pierce the thread fibers, splitting them and possibly causing tears in the fabric. This does not always happen, however, I have had it happen with specific fabrics, especially knit fabrics that have a thick painted-like print and while using the incorrect needle. So, be warned. Do not use overlocker needles. Any regular domestic sewing machine needles will do that is marked as 130/705, HAx1 and 15x1.
 

Needle replacement wrench

The 1034D uses a 2mm hex head wrench. However, some of the other machines like my Strong and Tough 4031 Strong & Tough, use a 1.5mm hex head wrench  ---- thanks to Admin Karen Wood!
