    Help with Singer 236 Needles

    Thank you for the reply. I do understand how to time the machine. I really just don’t know which needles to purchase.

    Help with Singer 236 Needles

    Thank you for that chart. According to it, the correct system is 16 x 246 NW or 128 x 22 NW. However, I'm just not clear which needles from which companies I should purchase. I purchased a Groz-Beckert 128x20 which is listed as the same as 128x22, but it does not work with my machine. Currently, the needle in the machine is a Schmetz 110, but perhaps the previous owner changed the needle bar height and timing to work with a non-compatible needle and now it's not working with the needles I just purchased I'm just not sure. That's why it would be extremely helpful to me if forum members who currently use the 236 could tell me which needles they use, specifically. Thank you!
  3. The manual for the 236W or 236G post-bed machine designates the needle as Singer 128X. Can anyone who uses the machine tell me which non-singer needles they use? I'be been recommended several Groz-Beckart needles with various systems, and none seem to be appropriate. Also, are there needles available with points other than the triangle point? Lastly, has anyone changed the needle bar or adjusted their needle bar to accept a different needle system? Thanks so much!
  4. Thanks DSloop. I’m in NYC. I appreciate the offer though.
  5. Thanks for the tips. Yes, I was going to use a white Formica top on top of two 3/4” boards. I’ll post pics when I’m ready. Wizcrafts, what kind of oil pan do you have under your 168? I imagine the setup is similar to the 236.
  6. That’s very nice. Thanks so much. I can measure mine. Not sure why that didn’t occur to me. I’ll blame lack of sleep.
  7. Thanks for the reply. With the correct dimensions. None of that sounds too difficult. Just hoping someone here had a template.
  8. Just acquired a Singer 236G120 head. I’d like to purchase or construct a table. Are the cutouts for these machines standard and, if not, where would I be able to obtain a template for this machine?
  9. Pretty much what the subject line says: Can Anyone Recommend a Small Roller Foot Post-Bed Machine? Are there any glove machines that have roller feed systems? Looking to do some light shoe making in an apartment. Thanks!
