They're kewl as shit, and *FULL* of artistry inside.
The workings are fun as all to watch.

I have a sewing machine repair shop. Family has been in the business for 20 yrs. I would reccomend you get a Denim needle. They are stronger metal and also sharper tip. Those broken needles are probably caused by you pushing the material thru the machine. The machine will feed the material. Just guide it thru and quit pushing. If it's not feeding fast enough increase the stitch length. Your going to tear something up if you keep pushing. Look at the needle plate where the needle passes thru on top of machine. If there is needle marks your pushing. Don't know if this helps but it can't hurt.

They do still sell them. Walmart I know for sure does. Ripped the shit out of my favorite jeans kicking the Ironhead to life a while back. Went middle school and got the denim repair iron on. Lame, but it worked. :eek:
