A little help with the needle selection

Postby Estevan » Wed Jun 28, 2017 2:51 pm

Hello everyone, I'm new here and I need a little help with needle selection, I hope you people can give me a hand. :D

I'm designing a very simple sewing machine for as a university project. I need to use a curved needle with a similar curvature/arc as a the ones used in upholstery (see below), something around 42 mm in circunference with a 12.5mm or 1/2" radius.


HOWEVER, for my project I need a needle that has the eye close to the tip, just as sewing machine needles. I've looked for blindstitch needles, but they are not so curved as those upholstery needles (they have just a small curvature).

Does anybody know any needle similar to the one I describe? Or maybe how they are called or how can I search for them. Any help is appreciated. :D

P.S.: I've thought of buying a straight sewing machine needle and try to bend it with a bending machine, but that is the last resort as needles are made to be hard to bend. :oops:
