I have two Brother garter carriages (a KG95 and a KG93) and the power adaptor/sensor has stopped working on both of them following yarn tangles. The sensors cut in on both of them to stop the G-Carriage (as it should) but neither will start. I am now looking to buy one or two replacements. Do you know where I might be able to buy one?
Many thanks, Elizabeth
I badly need a new lamp to illuminate my knitting, particularly in the winter months. The lights I have seen are expensive so want to get the right light. Please can anyone advise?
I hope someone can point me in the right direction of what to do or try. I haven’t used my knitting machine (Brother 950i) and motor drive (KE100) for ages so I am very rusty. Thankfully the machines aren’t! and before using the 950i I cleaned, oiled and changed the sponge bar. I was trying a sample yesterday when the carriage jammed and the motor drive safety mechanism kicked in by releasing the carriage from the motor shuttle, as it should. I cleared the problem and tried to reset the motor but it will not move the shuttle. In days gone by when this happened I did not have a problem resetting the shuttle and restarting the motor. The power light is on but nothing happens when I press the foot pedal. I’ve taken the pedal apart and checked visually for loose or burnt out wires and that’s OK. I don’t know if it is the motor sensor, yarn sensor or something else. Can anyone help please?
I have recently taken my Brother standard gauge machine and ribber out of mothballs and need some help to get started again. Is there asnyone in or near to Droitwich, Worcester who could help?
My friend and I decided to open a small boutique, selling cashmere apparel for women. As I mentioned we are beginners in this area, so I have one question regarding the yarn and specifically about the count. Many suppliers offer us different kinds of yarn like Nm 2/60, 3/80 and so on but we don’t understand which one is the best for us?! We have flat machine 5 and we will use one and more plies for our apparel. My question is what does it mean Nm 2/60 (numbers and letters)? How should we choose the yarn so it is good for our flat machine?! Thanks in advance for your help!
I’m having an issue with my carriage catching needles in one direction. The carriage operates normally from right to left. However from left to right is seems that as the needles are pushed forward and pass over the plate they ‘bump’ inside the carriage. They then want to ‘snag’ and bend slightly until they suddenly let go when the tension is suddenly released. I can’t see where there’s anything protruding to hang them up. Any ideas with this? By the way, the machine is very new.
Thanks in advance for any help.
My problem is that I can’t get the patterning to work. The pattern note in the book says:-MB carriage set to tuck in both directions. RB carriage set to slip from left to right and knit from right to left. I understand how to set the knit carriage to tuck in both directions but don’t understand the settings for the ribber carriage. I have tried many combinations with the buttons on the ribber carriage, but am now running out of wool and patience! Please can anyone help me?
Any ideas where I can get these please?
Need help to be able to continue with ribber to complete the collar of my jumper. No known repairer for my ribber.
