    Source for specialty needles

    My son has just acquired an industrial sewing machine which he is wanting to use for stitching leather. The machine does not use the standard needles we are all familiar with so just getting a regular leather needle will not work. Does anyone know where he can look to find these leather needles?

    Just discovered I qualify for FABLE (Fabric Acquired Beyond Life Expectancy)

    I found these two quickly by googling "industrial/commercial sewing machine needles".

    Found this website with information about needle sizes, types, etc.:

    He will need a size specific to his machine as well as a point suitable for leather.
