Toyota K65-1 Transfer carriage

Posted on

Hi
Does anyone own a Toyota K65-1 transfer carriage who might be able to help me? I’ve just purchased one but can’t get it to work.

The transfer carriage totally refuses to transfer stitches from the ribber to the main bed but does drop a few, so it’s definitely doing something if not the right thing!

I have a feeling it might be something to do with following Instruction 2 in the manual. It states ‘move ribber sideways by half pitch lever or racking handle’.

If I use the half pitch lever the ribber bed just moves half a point. If I follow the instructions and use the racking handle it tells me to turn the handle two full pitches to right and one to left. This gives a completely different placement of the ribber bed than when using the half pitch lever.

Also when using the racking handle, the diagram on the instructions shows the ribber bed moving from No. 5 to No. 6.5. Surely this a movement of 1.5 pitch and not one pitch? Or is one pitch signified by the numbers and dots? Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards
