Style 135X16DIA (DPX16DIA, SY3378) Size 23 (Metric Size 160)
These diamond point needles fit sewing machines that use 135X17 (DPX17) needles.
Diamond point needles are shaped like a wedge at the point, which gives them a superior piercing power for unyielding fabric such as real leather, suede or heavy vinyl. These needles make a clean, large hole as they enter the fabric. It is better to tie or seal thread ends rather than backstitching to secure. Sew accurately since removing stitches and restitching will leave hole markings. Synthetic leathers and suedes can and should be sewn with standard needles.
These diamond point needles will fit many models of Industrial Walking Foot Machines, Bartack Machines and Double Needle Machines including :
