Brother Knit Leader problems

Posted on

I am a newby to machine knitting and have really got hooked. My Brother Knit Leader seems such an obvious help to getting garments the right size. I’ve set it up but when I test it by scrolling forwards, it only scrolls maybe a quarter of a row, but I can do it backwards. I’ve dismantled it and found no obvious wear or breakages. Do I abandon it (it wasn’t that expensive), or can I repair it? Any suggestions please.

Hi
I’ve had the same sort of problem. My husband managed to bend it forward to the right position but now it only rotates right to left properly but left to right only goes about quarter turn. I’ve not used it for 13 years and have just got it out of the loft. I’ve put it down to wear and tear and I’m trying to find a cheap one to replace it as the dial is cracked and it’s missing the clutch button. It does sound in a sorry state doesn’t it. I know all this doesn’t help you but at least you know that someone else is in the same position.
Best wishes
