    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: These adapters are new from Boye. But be aware that your adapters will most likely have rust which you will need to remove.  This is not difficult to do.

    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 as these adapters have been discontinued. Consequently on this product we do not accept returns or exchanges.

      The Boye needle adapters fit the needles so they work. They are certainly not the same quality as the original adapters. They do not have the hole to assist tightening, so not have a chrome finish and, as others note, are a bit rusty.

    2. I'm sure this product performs well, but not the replacement I needed 3 Star Rating

      I'm sure this product performs as represented, but I had purchased it hoping it was the replacement I needed for my Boye NeedleMaster, part # 70-0692EE, and it was not.

    3. Adapters to the rescue for old Boyes 5 Star Rating

      Posted by on 8th Oct 2019

      These needle adapters help connect the old Boye needlemaster interchangeables to ChiaoGoo red twist cables making for a perfect interhangeable. Do need the ChiaoGoo S connectors to finish the connections.

    4. So happy to find these 5 Star Rating

      Posted by on 7th Aug 2019

      I was really happy to find the adapters and find that they work great in my set. I was very happy with Dove as well because they were mailed to me immediately. Thank you; now I can use all of the needles in my mother's old set of needles.

    5. Just what I needed 4 Star Rating

      Yes, they are a little rusty, but I was really glad to find them. They fit perfectly, and the rust doesn't slow them down one bit. Thank you for finding them for me.

      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.

    7. As expected 4 Star Rating

      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.

    8. Yeah cam now use all my circular needles 4 Star Rating

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

    9. Boye adapter great find 5 Star Rating

      Posted by on 18th Apr 2018

      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!

    10. Rusted 3 Star Rating

      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.
