    Product Description

    One package (2 pieces) of Boye knitting needle adapters. Use to attach older/vintage Needlemaster needles to current needles, cables and replacement parts. Be aware that current style points will only work on current style cables. The adapter is useless in this situation. However, you can use your older points with Boye newer cables by using these adapters. 

    NOTE: Please don't be concerned if your package of adapters was opened. They are new from Boye. But due to reported issues with rust on the screw threads, we may open and inspect the adapters prior to shipping.  We have discussed the rust issue with Boye's product manager, but at this time there is nothing that Boye intends to do about the problem. Consequently on this product we do not accept returns or exchanges.

      These enable me to use my old Boye set with newer style cables without shopping all over. They even work well with the ChiaoGoo small connectors so you can use their Twist cables.

      They arrived very quickly. As expected, they have rusted areas. They do exactly what they say they will, connect the current smaller cords to the larger older needles. I am pleased.

      It came quickly and it works. A bit rusty and dinghy but after a wipe down with oil it looks ok.

    4. Boye adapter great find 5 Star Rating

      I have 2 vintage Boye Needlemasters, one I purchased & the other inherited from my mom & sister. I've used them constantly for over 3 decades & have replaced some of the cables with newer Boye & Chiaogoo cables, both which require these adapters. Boye no longer sells them, so finding them is a treasure. Came a bit rusty but cleaned up nice with a bit of WD40. Thanks!

      It does what it's supposed to do, so I'm happy with performance. However, as warned, it arrived rusted. Boye should make a product that won't rust.

    7. Excited to Find Parts 5 Star Rating

      Like many of the reviewers, I've had this set for more than 30 years. When the end of one of the cables broke off in the adapter, it created an issue for the viability of the set. So happy to have been able to find parts. Looking forward to another 30 years!

    8. working against the push to buy new 5 Star Rating

      Posted by on 22nd Jan 2018

      We unfortunately live in a society that no longer fixes, saves spare part or reuses in a novel way. I have to admit it took a bit to find the adapters needed to make usable again the full set of good needles of my friend "Big Aliina's Boye knitting set. It is not just the cost of purchasing a new set-its the principle and the memories of a great knitting teacher. Merci -beyond words.

      I have a vintage set of Sears (Boye?) interchangeable needles. These adaptors enabled me to used a Chia Goo cable with them. Thank You.
