David and Philip reminded us how to maintain our machine by cleaning a fine gauge machine recently purchased by Philip. It seems it has never been used, but appears to have sat in a cupboard for many years. The main problem being the grease has solidified meaning the carriage was virtually unusable. David had to use a lot of elbow grease to free up the carriage parts.
Shelia then showed us how to make sure your ribber is positioned correctly when doing double bed knitting.
