Organ Needles
Did I get the wrong type?

I have been using Organ needles in my machines without a problem -- and I like the price. The last time I bought needles I may have picked up the wrong thing.

My machines use 130/705 needles - Organ makes a brown package that is clearly marked
HA x 1
130/705
15 x 1


I have 3 packages in a green wrapper marked
HA x 1
1738
16 x 231

Does anyone know if these needles in the green wrapper will work for machines that need 130/705? I checked the Organ buyers guide and I'm thinking these green wrapper needles might be for an industrial machine.

Are they fully rounded at the top? Industrial needles have a round shank whereas home machine take one with a flat side.

I've unknowingly used round shank needles in one of my home machines before I knew the difference. It sewed without any problems but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it.

You may have needles for an industrial lockstitch machine - Link.

I usually buy Organ Titanium coated in bulk from Allbrands for machine embroidery as they remain cooler and don't gum up the thread when stitching through adhesives. I also use them for sewing with or without any adhesives just because I like the brand.

Allbrands has an overview of the brand.

There is also a buying guide.

Patti -

Thanks for the link, that is exactly what I have. The description says they are round shank. I compared the mystery needle to a standard machine needle and they are the same length with the same shape except that the flat plane is slightly narrower on the mystery needle. Thanks for finding the description for me.

It would not have to be only for an industrial lock stitch machine if they happened to be size 12 or 14, just since then I think they would still fit and work fine in some older home overlockers, just since a 16 X231 needle is I think the same as a DB X1 overlocker needle. So if you know anyone whom has a older home overlocker like that, maybe pass them onto them, as they could use them too.
