Hi everybody
i have just purchased a Frobana outsole stitcher it’s a really old model with the exposed workings !!

to my surprise it works ok but I could do with some needles for it as it only has the one that came with it !

just wondered if any one can help me locate some ?

they look pretty unique to this machine...

thanks

Steve

They are unique to that machine and good luck trying to find any it has been many years since they were manufactured and then cost a fortune (£8-£10 each needle from memory) someone may have some knocking around though

thanks for your replies  .... looks like I’ll have to put an led in it and turn it into a table lamp .....lol.   shame because it stitches well ...

Hi Steve,

About a year ago I bought some old needles from someone (Her grandfather started his own folklore museum, but unfortunately he died) mostly because I liked the boxes they came in and I couldn't let them go to waste.

If you could send me a picture with the measurements, I could check if I have some needles that fit your frobana.
