Dubied Hand Knitting Machine
Dubied Industrial Hand Knitting Machine
My grateful thanks go to the family of Monsieur Charles Hely for donating this machine.
I collected the Dubied from St Brieuc but had no real idea of the weight of these industrial machines. Fortunately for me, the machine was dismantled and ready for me to take away.
This is the only industrial machine I have and it needed a deep clean as it had been sitting for many years in the attic and unfortunately it was suffering from rust.
After I had set it up in my packed shed, I cleaned it up with a lot of elbow grease, petrol and oil. Loads of the needle springs that are required to keep the needles in place were snapped and rusty and I am in the process of trying to get some of these.
