Anyone using a Merrow industrial serger? I only need a dozen needles for
my machine, but can only buy $150 worth on internet, min. order. Let me
know if you can sell some and size, etc.  Thx  JPBill

Oh I am so very tempted to write something along the lines of:
"You won't get much sympathy in your hunt: People who use a machine that
takes needles that can only be bought in a large job lot will have to take
responsibility, pay more, or whatever.", but I will refrain.

Thanks for your restraint. I've read your posts here; you should use it
more often.  JPBill

Three words: Pot, Kettle, Black.

On the same day, you ask for help to find your needles and then turn round
and in the very next post you insult a regular poster who is clearly feeling
very upset.  If you want help, then it would be politic to be nice.  You
weren't.

Because maybe it wasn`t kind of me to tell you that one can`t find
everything , everywhere ,, thus i apologized if my note was unkind to
you ,,,

I didn't take your comment as being unkind so there is no need to apologise
to me.  Your comment was simply accurate.  I'd doubt that any of us can find
all the things we'd like or need in our various locations.  Most us us have
to either compromise or hunt for many of the things we all need or use.

Farm is right; my remarks were intemperate and uncalled for as a
response to her call for a boycott of Comcast for their policy of
reining in people for 100x average use of their services. Turns out she
doesn't even use Comcast, but what the hey, computer problems make us
want to lash out at any convenient target, don't they, including
bystanders.

I apologize to her by assuming she is in the category of a heavy user.
Maybe the grandson's usage caused the ISP warning; Games, graphics and
downloading images takes a lot of bandwidth, but who knows?

Still looking for a kind soul to sell me a dozen Merrow needles or
direct me. Like it says in the bible: "Seek and ye shall find"; "ask and
it shall be given..."

I am not aquainted with the above mentioned machine. But i am
aquainted with the problem , of finding a sewing machine , after my
other one went to machine`s heaven, that will fit my sewing needs, as
well as my pocket `s abilities. Not all places sell all machines. When
i lived years ago in Boston , i went to buy a machine, because we knew
that we are going back , we looked for a Machine that was adaptable to
our electricity, the Shop keeper of the Famous sewing machine maker
promised it was Ok ,,,, Only when we traveled home , did we find out
that OUR Model wasn`t adaptable ,,,,, brrrr
Farml, Sometimes people can only buy, what they can find,,,,
Bill could you tell me the name or number or type or anything that is
written on your needles` box , and i will look around, if i can find
it i can send it to you ,,it is only a tiny envelope ,,, mirjam

Mirjam,

Thanks for your offer. A Merrow machine is a flat-out industrial machine
   for serging/finishing the edges of things or make seams all day long
and at high speed. Think of your serger on steroids. They were one of
the earliest overcast machines (1838), to the degree that the term
"merrowing" became generic, like "Kleenex" did for tissues. They are
still an industry leader in textile machinery, run by the Merrow family.

Some, like mine, found their way into homes. I'm not a power sewer by
any means and don't "deserve" it, but I can't resist old mechanically
superior machines to resurrect and gave new life. These machines
typically run 2000, 3000 and up to 4000 stitches per minute, depending
on the stitch. A real rush to operate if you're a speed freak!

The needles are curved like an upholsterers needle and readily
available, but suppliers sell to factories who have rows of machines and
buy needles in quantity, hence my "problem" with supply. So I thought
I'd give the group a shot in the off-chance someone out there is as
weird as I am about machinery and might have some to sell.

Sorry for the long post; we all have out addictions, don't we?

Bill i will look around , because i promised ,
But

Even if it is only for the idea , i don`t have a serger . thus i only
can imagine what you mean.
When i needed a new machine, i knew that i wanted it to sew + be able
to zigzag finnish my woven cloth , thus i looked for a Strong machine,
but also for one i could afford. found my machine and work with it ,,,
Nothing like you describe ,,

Thank you for the History lesson , it is always interesting .

Nice that you gave new life to an old machine , but superior ???? any
machine is superior to it`s owner, once they are working well
together!!!!!
Quoted text here. Click to load it
Maybe this Capeabilities were important to the factories or industry ,
but i would be afraid to use such a thing , i need to look and think
and at times ponder about some of my stitches ,,, Maybe in my far
family they used such machines for embroidery, can`t tell you more as
they were all murdered , i only heard a story or two about those
people.
Quoted text here. Click to load it
If those needles are still manufactured you could try and trace the
maker !!!
if not have you industry ?
I never saw a Curved Machinal needle , but i will ask when i walk
[anyway it`s on my way ] , by the shop ..

Have you tried emailing lindag?

Maybe you could contact other owners and form a temporary co-op to split
a wholesale order.

I was objecting to Bill's lack of sensitivity to one of our regulars who was
clearly upset.  He could have said the same thing in a much nicer way.
Others did.

He wants help.  Given what he wrote, even if I had known where he could get
the needles, I wouldn't have told him.
