By far the best repair shop is Nedle-TEK and located in the USA.  I have never been disappointed or had issues with them. They are also a great resource for parts and accessories, DAK, DAK cables, lessons and more.  They service and sell Brother/KnitKing, Silver Reed/Studio/KnitMaster and Toyota Knitting Machines.
Another great experience for me in the USA has been with Knit and Sew.  This woman is very nice and always willing to help, in addition she is also a PASSAPDealer, is very passionate about PASSAP, knows A LOT about these machines and just loves themShe also sells and repairs Brother/KnitKing and Silver Reed/Studio/KnitMaster Knitting MachinesHer name is Tammy Noble.

She also has the special ribber coupler arm so that you can use your SK
160 Main Bed with the SR860 Ribber Bed without upgrading to the SK860.  You can see information about this item in the About Knitting Machines section in the General Knitting Machine Accessories.

For Knitting Machine Sales, this vendor is honest about her knitting machines and equipment and sells them for a good price AND they are cleaned and completely vetted BEFORE they come to you (unlike some other places).  She sells Brother/KnitKing and Silver Reed/Studio/KnitMaster Knitting Machines, parts and accessories.

                             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 sponge bar. 

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.
