I am helping a friend here in Las Vegas look for a scarce style needle. I am hoping someone out there knows where we can find these. His stock is running low and he is beginning to worry. The needle is a 5 Flat "pencil tip" I cannot find these online anywhere. He also uses a 5 flat short taper, I believe these are easier to find, but he prefers the pencil tip style. If someone could point me in the right direction on where to find pencil tip needles, or refer me to a site that sales quality flat short tapers, I would be forever grateful.
