Reviews

The 12 curved needle is essential for stitching a wing, unwieldy for stitching anything smaller.

Nice to have an extra needle for rib stitching if someone wants to help.

The needles were just as ordered and would ordinarily rate 5 stars. I rated them 3 stars to bring to your attention that the packaging left a bit to be desired - they were shipped in an large, padded envelope - nothing else - and protruded out the envelope. Discovered the sharp points when retrieving from my mailbox. Be forewarned.

I ordered two 12 inch curved needles. One is just as expected. The other one has corrosion where the mandrel clamped on to make the bend. Poor quality control. I expect better for what these cost.
