I bought the Duo 80 secondhand. I’ve always wanted one, but I’m not very successful with the sample pieces in the manual. When the handle is down, in which position should the needles be? Mine are head to head, so is this correct@ I managed the knit/knit but as soon as I started the Fisherman’s rib section, the lock jammed. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Sue
I have had this machine given to me and its in full working order complete with manuals and pattern books. I have briefly been on a machine knit course through university so I know all the basics, but I wanted to expand my knowledge and start making! I’ve followed the instructions to the dot in setting it up and at first it would do a quick cast on (right to left) and on the way back it would just miss the needles and not stitch. After searching the internet and asking friends they mentioned the sponge bar..It was completely flat! I got some draft excluder and changed it in hope it would work! Now its not picking up and stitches either way and its driving me insane! All the settings and dials are correct. I’ve checked the carriage brushes and wheels for wrapped thread and there isn’t any. I don’t know where to go next with it!? If anyone can help it would be amazing.
I’m looking for Elaine Cater’s attachment that speeds up the garter carriage. It clamps onto the table and garter carriage, has arms that hang down and changes the direction of the garter carriage and speeds it up. It looks like a doggy with a wobbly head. Where can I buy one?
Does anyone have a machine knitting pattern for a garment with a hood please?
I have had several unsuccessful attempts to machine knit a sweater with a ‘V’ neckband. Can anyone suggest an easy method please.
I was about to programme a pattern into my Brother 950i using a Mylar sheet when it suddenly stopped working. I can still use the built-in patterns but can’t input my own. Can anyone give me any advice please?
I have just done a sample piece of circular knitting for the first time on my Toyota KS901 and KR501 ribber. I used 3-ply and tension 4/4. The trouble is that both edge stitches for the full length of the tubular piece are very untidy and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Very kind regards.
Can anyone help with advice on this? I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong, or if the PE1 is faulty. I’ve followed the instructions in the manual and everything seems to be okay, but when I click the inspection button light off and press = on the controller it doesn’t feed the card through the reader to read it into the controller. The display says okay but there’s nothing read into the controller because the card doesn’t move.
Thanks for any help.
I have not used my Knit Leader for some years and have set it up today on my Brother Chunky 260 and it will not turn the cogs in the working direction. It will turn backwards. Have had a look for anything to cause this but nothing is showing. HELP!! Any suggestions to cure this problem would be appreciated.
