Re: Needles for threader

I have looked every where,
I insert my needle should all of the flat part be inside?
I have a dental mirror and can see but not sure if up all the way
would leave any flat part visible.
Thank you.

I have the 15000 and the 9900 [which is the older model of the S9] and love them both.
