Hi everyone, I have just bought a second hand e 6000 and am struggling with it. I live in south Lincolnshire, south Holland area, and would welcome help from any one in the area.
It would be lovely if anyone knows of a club in the area.
I’ve now owned my Passap DUO 80 for six months and don’t seem to be making progress beyond the very basic knitting techniques. Is there anyone in the South Yorkshire, S73 area, who would be willing to give up some time to help me out.
Very kind regards, Alan
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’m just getting back to machine knitting and need help on the subject of tension. Is there anyone who can help me with the recommended tension on a Passap for stocking stitch, tuck and Fair Isle using Panama and Yeoman 50/50. Any help would be appreciated.
I have taken out my Passap and Knitmaster knitting machines after over 20 years. I bought from eBay June Brereton’s book of Yeoman Panama Summer Tops and have the right yarn, but the pattern says to use a reel of knit-in elastic for the rib. Do I need to use this or is there an alternative way of doing the rib?
I recently purchased Passap and a motor and wonder if it’s possible to do a dry run with the motor – that is, no yarn threaded and no needles working. If so, what do I have to do? I have a Brother motor and the instructions are easy but I find that Passap give very little information. Any help would be much appreciated.
The belt on my Electra 3000A Motor for my Passap E6000 has broken. Does anyone know of a Passap mechanic in Scotland who could repair this for me?
