Brother Kx-390 Convertible Knitting Machine 4.5/9.0 Mm
Here's a Brother KX-390 Convertible Knitting Machine. The interchangeable sets of plastic gate pegs allow you to choose either 4.5mm (standard) or 9mm (bulky) knitting. With standard gauge you will have 220 needles, 20 more than the 200 on most standard gauge machines. In "bulky mode" you will have 110 needles. You can knit stockinette, tuck stitch (holding), skip stitch, hand transferred lace, and more. The photo shows a simple tuck pattern I did using the hold levers. Because this machine does both gauges, the needle hooks seem to be slightly larger than most standard gauge needles. The plastic bed machine has built in table clamps that pivot out for use. Also included are: row counter, tension rod stand, tension rod and tension unit. Also, a carriage with hold and partial capability. There are two sets of gate pegs, for the two gauges. There is a 3-piece cast on comb, 2 claw weights, 5 transfer tools (to fit both gauges), a latch tool, two spare needles, two needle pushers, a tapestry needle, and a bottle of silicone oil. Not included are 2 yarn rests, but you could easily improvise with a couple clips or clothespins. The manual is a copy, but very clear. The pages are all in plastic sleeves so they are in very good shape.When I got this machine, it had suffered a broken gate peg (r. #1 on standard gauge) and a break at the right rear of the main bed. I have repaired these--shown in close up photos. The repairs are perfectly functional.I combine shipping whenever possible, so please take a look at my other listings. I am adding new items almost daily.Thanks for looking.
