A word about the Tricot KRC1000e & KRC1000m Yarn Color Changer 
This item is an "after market" 6 Color Yarn Changer that works with Brother Knitting Machines made by Tricot.  There is a Manual model that is designated with an "M" and an Electronic model that is designated with an "E".  It works with any Brother Knitting Machine and is a double and single bed attachment (KRC), to include the bulky.  It is a wonderful item and the electronic model has the ability to change out 6 yarns automatically with  the Brother KH970 Knitting Machine and 2 yarns automatically with the other knitting machine models the other 4 colors manually.

I have seen people try to sell the "E" models new for up to $1,000 and that price is much too high, even new.  Remember, it is ONLY a yarn changer.









I have bought this item in like new condition for around $300 at  Daisy Knits,  but it did take me a while to find it, so just be patient and save $700.  If you want to spend more you can, just telling you my experience with this item.  I think this item new should be no more than around $300 - $400 for the "E" model and for the "M" model around $150 - $250. Remember, it is ONLY a yarn changer.

Daisy Knits, on 05/09/2012, had 2 listed; the 1000m at $250 and the 1000e at $350.  So this item can be found used for a much lower price rather than dishing out a grand for it new.  Did I mention  it is ONLY a yarn color changer.
