Introduction: Nerd / Hacker Needle, Thread and Needle Threader

How to use a needle threader if you are a nerd / hacker

Step 1: You Bought an Advanced Needle and Thread Set

Good for you! It has a thing called a needle threader in it. It is the thin silver thing you saw in the picture. How to use it? That is what this intructable is all about.

Step 2: Sorting Advanced

Because you have bought an advanced set. You have a lot more needles and pins to sort out. Sort them and use pins as indicators of quality. Red is crappy needles. Green is good needles. You get the picture.

Step 3: Push the Needle Threader Through the Needle Hole

If this works, good for you. Add the thread and pull out.

Step 4: If the Hole Seems to Small

Flatten the wire peace of the needle threader with your fingers and grab it close to the beginning. You can then force it though the hole.

Step 5: Succes

A winner is you. If you do not have a needle threader go to this page

    As I mentioned I have fixed with fish wire and needles, but did not document it so I think I have to how to communicate it when I have already finished the fix.

    Yes, I store them on a bread board and I do not have a steady hand so I searched for a solution and needles and beadboards fit like a glove.
