Needles And Threads

Recommended Posts

You want 16x2 or DBx2 for that machine. That number is called the "system". 

Then you need to pick size (generally the diameter of the needle) based on the thread you are using.

For size 33 (commercial) thread like I use on boot tops, I use a size 14 needle, but anything from 12 to 15 might work.

On this link from Groz-Beckert I find both 16x2 and 16x257 needles. The sizes are from 55/7 up to 110/18.
