His machine is a copy of the Singer 111W, which is the same set-up with the same feet as my Consew machines, and they take a 135x17 needle. Creative is totally right, the wrong needle, loose needle, poorly installed needle, or twisted needle is something else that could also cause the fraying and cutting. His main problem with sewing welting was not using a welt foot or something set up to act like a welt foot.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
