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.

Several carriages for Brother main beds 820 and 910 and several carriages for Brother ribber, several sinker plates for Brother ribbers

3 X Belinky straight linkers,  2 in working order, used them few years ago, just some teeth missing and have some spare needles,  the 3rd one has a lot of teeth missing and it seams not to fit the spare needles? It is possible to use teeth from that one to fix the other two, needs somebody to be able to weld them in.

I have just acquired a Passap 6000 machine and the colour changer is damaged in need of repair.
Is there anyone who could possibly repair it for me, or maybe some one has a spare I could purchase?

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.
