I'm having a real tough time sourcing affordable 6"curved needles with a bayonet point here in the uk, do any of you guys have a sweet stock or contact you could pass along? Id be most grateful, I (and most other Uk/European) upholsterers hand tie springs onto the webbing with them, in fact i think i do most springing operations with them, loads of different lock stitches the list is endless they are just the best curved needle going over 4".

I've always thought about buying a clench-it tool for fastening springs. There sooo much faster but sooo expensive. That probably wouldn't work for the antique restorations you do.

Not sure what you mean by affordable but I like the Osborne 3-square like this only $5.15 for a set of 4

Here is a company that sells the bayonet point Osborne curved needle for $57.99??? :o For one??? :o Can that be right?

Never bought from them so buyer beware.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

Sorry affordable was a bit ambiguous, 34 or around $55 buys you a pack of twelve (one size) if you buy thorough osbourne's official uk distributor, I just cant believe that they cost that much to produce compared to other needles. I need to buy 4 or 5 packs of 1-dozen so up to 60 needles in total for myself some mates on the bench and the college, so I'm sure you can see why I'm looking to save a few bucks. I had to laugh at the $57.99 needle it must be gold plated with a cut diamond tip at that price  :o

I work at a shop where we had a clinch tool here in the Uk and the guys in Montreal i spent some time with all used them but i didn't get on with it. Its ok for lounge sofas and armchairs but I'm surprised folks use it on dining chairs because of the little spikes that can be felt underneath. Children could get caught on the spikes real easy if they crawl under the seat, that aint gonna happen with a tie.

The fastest seat is one that doesn't come back to bite you on the ass  :D
