    Congratulations!!! I would love to have one of those!! I can't offer you any help about the needles but there are several members of this forum who have the two-spools machines and they will probably be able to help you. Welcome to the forum, BTW!

    HI! I own a National Two Spools.
    The Two Spools uses the standard needles;so, no need to hunt down a special one.
    Please post a photo of your machine. Folks here in the Vintage Machine Shop love to see each others vintage machines. Here is the link to the photo page: Vintage Sewing Machine Shop Machine Photos

    And here is the link to the Shop's discussion thread:Vintage Sewing Machine Shop.....Come on in and sit a spell

    There are a couple of us on the Vintage Machine Shop thread that own Two Spools and use them.

    The standard needle that is used in the modern machines, a 15x1, that can be purchased at a JoAnn's or other fabric sewing center stores.

    Go to settings--top right; then to general settings--scroll down list on left. Now scroll to Misc settings and check enhanced interface. See below----Make sure to save changes.

    Miscellaneous Options

    After the change, when you reply the reply box has features on the top for font, size, color, similie, and upload of pictures. Just click on them to see how they work.
