    What a clever inovative idea. Your tute is easy to understand as is your English. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, this is scary. I think you just started something, but a big thanks for this tip. I am from the old school of using it up before throwing it away. This just adds a few more hours usage out of the needles. Thanks.

    I frequently sew using a treadle sewing machine. Some of the needles are very hard to find. This trick will extend the use of a great many needles!

    Even if the needle is a wee bit shorter, extending it down a mm will solve 90% of any problem created. Thank you for sharing!

    Next time I go into town I'm going to pick up the fine grade of steel wool. What a great tute, thank you so much.
