Many of the problems associated with dropped stitches can be attributed to a perished sponge bar.

These flexible sponge bars are now available for purchase at $12.50 each (+ $4.50 per NZ Post)
(I can send 2 sponge bars for that freight charge, as an Oversize Letter)
For your club or group - Enquire for larger quantities
for both Standard & Bulky machines. (Brother, Singer, Toyota etc.)
I have improved these so they can be inserted or removed from either end of the machine,
even in a confined space. Why pay more??? I have many testimonials from several countries.

I have a Passap Duomatic 80 Form Computer to pass on to someone. It is still in it's box and has never been used.

Also just found a Transfer Lock U 70 for the Passap Duomatic 80 also still in it's box. It says it will work on machines from serial number 634001 onwards.

I am in Devonport, North Shore, Auckland. Recipient to collect or pay postage/freight. A donation to your local Cancer Society would be appreciated.

I am looking for a cheap used Bond knitting machine
and am wondering if you know of one for sale.  I used to have a very old
variety of this machine and I did wonderful things on it. 
Due to circumstances I had to give it away and just lately I have come to
really love the Bond knitting machine.  I am a pensioner and
maybe a knitting machine might help me to earn a bit on the side.
