SPONGE BAR STRIPS - REPAIRS
You can now repair your own sponge bars for less than buying a new one and with shipping it is a savings. Designed by a Calvin Klein Knitwear designer and Parsons School of
Design graduate, the Ultra sponge bar is the ultimate knitting machine
Made from the perfect density of sponge - Medium Density. The
Science: High Density is too hard causing needles to get stuck, Low
Density is not resilient and compresses too easily, Medium Density is
soft enough to work with the needles, but strong enough to last a long
time. Covered in two types of textiles for smoothest use. Strong black mesh on one side for adhesion and form. Durable,
off-white smooth binding fabric on the other side to keep the needles
from snagging and for smooth carriage use.
* Made to last. Will last 3-5 years with normal use (unlike most sponge bars which only last 1 year)
While you are ordering these knitting machine bed needles from Germany, the price CANNOT be beat. For 100 needles from him, you are paying for about 50 of them here in the US. He also has other items for sale to include tools and other after market items.
A Nod to Peter Smith Trading, Lt.
This is the "GO-TO" guy for any hard to find item for your knitting machine in ALL of North America, including Canada. Even though he is in Canada, he has everything. If he does not he can either get it or send you to someone who can help you.
He specializes in knitting machines of ALL kinds but his machines are pricey and you can purchase machines in the States for a lot less, so I reccomend him for the hard to find items . Below are links to the websites that I know of in case you need something that no one else will have, which he will from the smallest screw to new or fully vetted knitting machines of all kinds to include Studio, Silver Reed, PASSAP, Brother, KnitKing, KnitMaster, TOYOTA and others. He also carries yarn on cones, offers knitting machine classes in Canada and repairs knitting machines.
