Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Get some 15x1's and have at it!
I meant to behave......but there were too many other options
Oh, you are a life-saver!
Okay, maybe that is overstated a bit but today I started the hunt for needles for the 187? LA Davis I have here. I stumbled upon this post through a web search.
I am ecstatic to have found this information. Off to try and locate this needle. And a bobbin tyre.

My best is the least I can do.
Where do I go to find a specific age date for my Minnesota B? I have a complete number, but apparently not the brains to find this information after hours and days of searching. Her number is D1470174.
Don't feel bad, you'd need psychic ability rather than brains to figure out a make date for your B. The Minnesota B was made from approximately 1904-1909. You have a later serial number, so I'd estimate 1907 or 1908. The Minnesota B warranty certificate consisted of a page in the manual the customer needed to fill out. I've only found one filled out so far.
Thanks for bringing this old thread back. I've got a Minnesota model A. Am I correct in assuming it takes the same needles? Do you happen to know what years the model A was made? I need to find a bobbin winder assembly for it, and would like to (someday) convert it to a hand crank.

Jon, I have a WheelerWilson #8 and a #9 can I use the same needle in both machines? The #8 machine is in pristine condition and came with lots of needles and attachments. I'm still cleaning the #9.
