Needles not Sitting right

e Hello,
Im hoping someone can help me regarding my mag setup, When im setting up my mag needles i set up like i do for lining and shading using RL. I bend the needle bar slightly but once its all set up(rubber bands on) the needles are sticking up from the tip not sitting flush with the tip, Which is of course wrong. This happens with normal M1 weaved and Bugpins, 09 size is what i use in a flat 7 tip.

and advice would be great as i want to get this right.

e Sounds like your needle bar is not directly in the middle of the tube. If it is towards the bottom, and not flush in the center where the vise is located, you will get this problem. You may need to adjust your Abar, and then springs and throw to compensate.

e Its also possible the bend in the bar isn't bent enough. Could be an easy fix.
