Alternative to Groz Beckert 135X16LR #22

Recommended Posts

I just bought a Consew 206rb and I'm in the process of getting it ready for leatherwork. Studying all the great posts on this site it looks like I will mostly use size 138 thread for much of what I want to do. Looking at the Groz Beckert guide, it looks like I want the LR points to approximate the look of a saddle stitch but I can't seem to find the size 22 (for the 138 thread) in stock anywhere online. Searching this forum it appears to be a common problem.

That said, can anyone recommend a different manufacturer that makes a similar slanted point in that size?

Thanks!

You might try Schmetz needles.  They have 135x16 needles in size 22 in a myriad of tip styles.  

They might have the type you're after.  I had to special order mine.

Thanks Wiz. I have plenty of needles in all sizes but I was specifically looking for the "LR" or "LL" needles that add a slant to the stitch as shown in this picture from the Groz Beckert brocure:

Hey- 

Did you ever get hold of some #22 LR needles? I have a good number of DIA and TRI, but can't find LR in anything larger than a #19 or #20 (#21 or #23 would be OK as well, but insane s&h charges aren't).

Call Bob Kovar, at Toledo Industrial Sewing Machines (866-362-7397) and ask if he has some in stock. I've been to his shop and am here to tell you there be needles there!

Does anyone have a current source for 135x16 LR needles? I've called Bob a few times and have left messages to no avail.
