Hi. I’m visiting from the woodworking world, hoping someone here can help with a hand needle question.
I’ve got a woodworking scratch awl handle designed for a replaceable tip that resembles a needle without the eye (the company’s out of business, so I can’t just order a new tip). The collet that takes the tip requires a very specific size – 3/32″, or 0.09375″. It occurred to me that there might be a hand needle the right size, but I’ve had trouble getting specific information on needle dimensions.
What I’m looking for will be 3/32″ for at least an inch, tapering to a sharp point, and as long as possible up to 3-5″. Can anyone tell me if there’s a hand needle that has those dimensions?
Thanks for your help.
