Hi all,

I put a twin needle onto my Singer 223 and it runs just fine except...the second needle (the one on the right) doesn't pick up the bobbin thread.
I'm thinking just because the twin needle FITS the 223 doesn't mean the 223 can make use of the 2nd needle.
Does anyone know if the 223 can work with a twin needle?

Thanks so much?
Patricia

Could the needle be in backwards?

Good Question! Because of your post I went and checked it and it looked good but just to be sure I turned it around and it worked the same.
THEN...I removed some face plates and started monkeying with stuff "under the hood". Tightening, loosening, etc.
I adjusted the height of the needle bar so the needles dropped a little lower towards the bobbin case and voila!

It works beautifully!

Thanks for the suggestion!
