Never used, except to knit the original sock and then I knit a sock on it to
make sure it was working well after I cleaned the dust off it. Original sock and
my sock included with purchase, plus dvd, new needles, original buckle, etc.
Everything that came with it originally, plus more!
Most of my machines are sold fairly quickly. Most times I don't even get a
chance to list them here before they sell.
I've left the ones that are sold below to give you an idea of what they
look like restored, and what normally comes with them. If interested in a
machine and I don't have one here for sale, please email me.
Thank you, firstname.lastname@example.org

I have been restoring sock machines for approximately 17 years, now.
I restore them in their original paint, or strip & repaint them.
My newest venture is powder coating.
I began teaching myself to powder coat in June 2003.
More info on powder coating.

powder coated machines.

My restored sock knitting machines all come with a guarantee that they are completely in working
condition (both regular and rib knitting), sock
knitting video or dvd, all brand new needles with extra cylinder needles and extra ribber needles, a sample sock left knitted on the machine with a cone of that
same yarn, copies of the Legare manual and AK manual, my patterns for easy basic
socks on both cylinders, pick hooks, lifting crescent, set up basket, hold down
weights, heel helper for doing the heels & toes.
You also get help from me by email, phone (800 number) or in person in learning to knit socks on it.
Basically everything you need to get started knitting on your machine except for
the stand and waste yarn.
I restore just about any type of sock knitting machine, so if you're interested
in a particular model or kind, just let me know.
If you have special interests as far as what you would like to knit with, let me
know that, too.
Please note: I do not have
time to restore other people's machines. I only restore my own to resell.
Also, the problem with trying to restore other people's machine is that if they
are purchased on Ebay or elsewhere,
they don't always come with the original parts. Some come with mismatched
parts. Some come with warped or cracked pot metal.
I don't carry extra parts for other people's machines. And I don't like to
tell them that their machine is not matched right or in too poor of shape to
I also purchase vintage and antique flatbed and circular sock knitting machines to
restore, if you have one you would like to sell.
See buying page.
Lessons are free with purchase of a machine, or email me for schedule/price of
classes, private or group.
