Hi
I found this website which may be of help:

http://knittsings.com/how-to-make-a-knitting-machine-needle-retainer-sponge-bar-part-1-remove-the-old-and-clean-for-new/

If you really can’t buy a new one – it looks very possible to make good the old one!

I usually buy from bsk – they are on eBay and you may be able to contact them to see if they can get a sponge bar to fit.

Hi Wrapaholic

I would like to buy a new one but if I can’t thanks for the information but where do you buy the felt?

Do you cut it to fit?

Thanks
Angie

Hi Have you tried Ebay I have just bought one for my old Jones Brother 910. Price was reasonable as well.

Also try BSK – they are usually very helpful.

Hi I have just followed the instructions on Knitsings for my Toyota 901 – sponge bars are no longer available.
I bought 1/2 inch foam on ebay and some woven iron-on interfacing but it is rather a loose weave and I think Vilene might be better. A rotary cutter sliced through the foam really cleanly. I am really pleased with the result.
