I bought this machine via an ad on the internet - Leboncoin in France - and the very kind lady packed it up and posted it to me - it came well wrapped in brown sticky tape but it did the job, I wondered why at the time there was a heavy long steel bar in the package and soon realised that it was to protect the machine which has a plastic bed. Good idea don't you think!
Hassle, Hassle and more Hassle
I have been days with this machine and its not an easy machine to operate. Weights are necessary – and keeping the heavy metal carriage close to the bed is also essential or it shears the heads of my precious needles. Like all of its ilk, I think a new set of needles would do it the world of good. Faulty latches cause all sorts of problems – the machine itself is in good condition but it’s a quirky beast that needs slow cautious knitting.
