Studio/Silver Reed Lace Carriages
More information about the Lace Carriage is in the accessories area that you read about in the  General KM Accessories section

LC580:  Fits SK560, SK580 and SK830, for the SK830 modifications need to be managed.  You can add the PE1 to this model and comes with 20 stitch design sheets.  Cost is $500 new and used from $250 up, it holds it's value well.

LC560:  Fits SK560, SK580, SK840.  Comes with 10 stitch designs  cards  Cost used is $150 - $350.  (I do not know why this one is less expensive than the LC580.)

LC1:  4.5mm Lace Carriage fits the SK360 only.

LC2: Fits Punch Card Machines SK210, SK260, SK280, SK360, SK600, SK700, SK740.  Comes with 10 stitch pattern cards.  Cost new is $300, used about $150. (also fits the Artisan 245)

LC260/360: 4.5mm Lace Carriage for the SK260, SK280, SK360, SK700, SK740.  Cost about $200 used.

FLC270/370:  3.6mm Fine (as in stitch size NOT lace design) Lace Carriage for the FK260/370 fine stitch knitter.  Used about $200.

NEW NEWS FOR 2012:
You can purchse a special ribber arm in order to use your SK160 main bed with the SR860 ribber bed and NOT upgrade to the SK860 or SK860 carriage.  This does not mean you now have an electronic machine, but before if you wanted to use a ribber with your 6.5mm machine you have spend between $900 to $1500+ in order to do so.  Contact Tammi Noble and Knit and Sew.  Below are pictures of the ribber coupler arm.

***I came across information that the PE1 design controller only works with the 4.5mm knitting machines, specifically the SK580 and the SK840, but double check, as this may be incorrect.

PLEASE NOTE:  When purchasing a Ribber AND Yarn Color Changer, either the YC5 or YC6 - You must keep the YC6 with the SRP60 or SRP60N Ribber and the YC5 goes with the SRP50 Ribber.  If you do not keep them with the appropriate Ribber, birds eye floats will not happen.  Also, if you have the Singer model below the SK560, you use the SRP50 with the YC5.  For additional information about the SK560 and SK580, please see the  Silver Reed Used Pricing page.
