This site shows Organ and Schmetz needles but most quality needle brands would be suitable for your machine. A standard 130/705H needle will work. Just be careful as I believe my machine recommends no needles larger than a size 90.

Brother swings machine bs 2430 needle size and number


The owner's manual should explain what needle system to use--most US domestic sewing machines take 130/705, but that isn't true for all of them. If your manual doesn't have the information, contact your local Brother dealer.

The size of needle is determined by what you are sewing, ie silk fabric would probably use a Universal needle size 70/10 or smaller. A heavier knit would probably take a Jersey (ballpoint) needle size 80/12 or 90/14. Denim fabric would probably use a Jeans needle size 90/14.

From where can i buy elna sewing machine needels? Pleace.


Consult your owner's manual for the size needles your machine takes. Usually, it is 130/705 needles.

If so, you can purchase this size from most any fabric, sewing repair shops, or online vendors. There are many manufacturers who make needles, ie Schmetz, Organ, Klasse, as well as Singer. Schmetz is readily available most places in the US. (IMHO, Singer needles are made more specifically for Singer sewing machines and may not work as well on a non-Singer machine. Most Singer machine manuals recommend using only Singer needles and some sewists have experienced problems when using a different brand.) You may have to experiment with brands if you have any problems with a specific manufacturer brand.

However, there is much more to choosing needles for your machine than the size and brand. The most important choices are to choose needles that suit the thread & fabric you will be sewing. Be sure to read up on the needle types (from smallest 65/9 to heavier 110/18) and the design/shape that will work best for you, ie sharps (for woven fabric) or ball-point (for knits), quilting, topstitch, embroidery, microtex, stretch, denim, universal, leather, etc.
"The European metric sizing system for sewing machine needles is numbered from 60 to 110. The American sizing system is numbered from 8 to 18. For both sizing systems, the lower the number the finer the needle and the higher the number the larger the needle. Most needle companies show both sizes on the package." (quote from Singer)

In addition, if your machine is capable, you may also be able to use twin, triple needles, wing, wedge point needles. The following will be helpful when you make your purchasing choices:

What size needle to use


Use Organ HA x 1SP needles size 90 (14) for general sewing or 75 (11) for light weight fabrics. These are common needles and Amazon carries them. There are other sources. When you choose the needle size, look at your thread relative to the groove in the needle. (The thread should fit in that groove.) I use the Singer Sewing Book for good pictures of the needle to thread size.

Singer has the manuals for the Superlock 2000 ATS on their site. Part 1 of the manual is here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/984_sl-2000-ats-wb-a-x.pdf . All manuals are here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . Enter the model number without the letters after the number.

I hope this helps.

My needle broke. I replaced it. Now when I lower the needle to grab the bobbin thread it is hitting something. I have taken the bobbin case out and put it back in but it still wont work. Any suggestions? ...


It sounds to me like you have replaced the broken needle with one that is too long (wrong size).Check your manual for the proper needle size and look through your collection, or head down to the local sewing shop and pick up a new pack of proper sized needles. Now if the needle you replaced the broken one with is the same size, you most likely didn't loosen the set screw up enough and therefore didn't slide the needle up far enough before locking it in. Double check this.

Good Luck!

What size sewing needles and brand are right for my riccar 2600 model?


It should tell you in the owners manual.
http://www.riccar.com/ftp/whitepapers/2600-Owners-Manual.pdf
Most needles are suitable for all machines. The size of the needle depends on the thickness of the material you are trying to sew. Usually the finer the material, the smaller the needle.

My xl-5700 the needle keeps breaking or the thread keeps getting all bunched up plus I lost my instruction manual can I gat a new one


About the needle problem, Brother's FAQ gives the following response: 

Make sure the needle is correctly inserted with the flat side facing the back and pushed up into the machine as far as possible.

The needle could have been damaged or bent. If so replace with a new one.

Make sure the fabric is not pulled excessively when sewing. Let the feed dogs move the fabric. Do not pull the fabric.

The combination of needle size, thread size and fabric is incorrect. 
Be sure to use the correct needle and thread size for the fabric you are sewing.(example: Denim-size 16 needle and 40-50 heavy duty thread).

As for the manual, here's the link:
