Home Knitting Machines
If you are looking for a knitting machine I definitely recommend you one of the Silver Reed knitting machines. Why? Because they are japanese which is translated into quality and are still being manufactured which means you can find parts for them and support easily. Silver Reed manufactures different types of knitting machines: manual (LK150, SK160*), punch card (SK155*, SK280) and electronic (SK840, SK860*, SK830*); fine gauge (SK830*), standard gauge (SK280, SK840), mid-gauge (LK150, SK160*, SK860*), bulky gauge (SK155*). One (or more ) of them is certainly perfect for your wants and needs.
Those marked with * are not being manufactured anymore due to the fact that the manufacturer’s business was really affected by the tsunami in Japan and they restricted their business by choosing to produce only the most popular of their machines: LK150, SK280 and SK840. Hopefully, they will recover and the other great machines will be manufactured again.
