Maximum Size Of Needle -Singer 132B6

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I recently got hold of a cop of very heavy thread to try a bit of fancy stitching on my singer 132b6.

The thread is metric 5 and the needles I got are 280 ( a bit like nails) but the needles are too big

to fit through the hole in the presser foot, I don't want to drill the hole bigger if the machine can't

handle this size of thread and needle so i'm wondering if anyone can advise if I'm on a winner

or not.

Sorry I'm not too good on US sizes

Thanks if anyone can help,

The largest we used to put in these when we sold them is #230.
