Some photos of the Harley Kay Sock Knitting Machine.
These industrial sock machines are very heavy and were "built like a tank".
They take a different needle than the auto knitters, Legare's and Creelman Bros machines.
The latch is longer and a bit lower positioned.

It's a conical ribber, like the Tryon/Tuttle used.
The ribber is attached with a wing nut.
The machine has to be bolted to a table, unless it comes with it's stand. (see below)

This machine is heavier than the larger Creelman Bros machines.
