Before purchasing spare needles for your Hague Linker please check the number embossed on the shank of the needle or, if the needle is still being used in the machine, cross reference the serial number of the machine against the information supplied below. Not all Hague Linking Machines use the same needle and it is important that the correct needle is used as they are not interchangeable. This product listing is for a pack of two Hague 180/24 linker needles.
Needle Size 180/24
This is the current needle used in all current standard gauge Hague Linking Machines, both hand and electric versions, and it has been used in all standard gauge machines since August 2012.
This means, if you have a hand operated standard gauge machine with a serial number above 911382, it will have been supplied with a 180/24 needle fitted.
All Hague standard gauge D280E & D10E Electric Linkers have always been supplied with a 180/24 needle as standard apart from a small batch, serial numbers 928178 - 928429, which actually took the 160/23 needle listed below.
Needle Size 160/23 - Now Discontinued
This needles was previously used in all Hague D10H & D280H Hand Linkers up to serial number 911382 which came out of production in May 2012. This needle has not been used in any machines since May 2012 and all stock has now been exhausted leaving this needle unavailable. This needle was also used in some Hague D280E Electric Linkers which were serial numbers 928178 - 928429.
Unfortunately the 160/23 needle is no longer available and all old stock has now been sold. If you have an old Hague Linker which currently uses a 160/23 needle, then it can be upgraded to the new 180/24 needle, but it would need to be returned to us for a standard service.
