I think you might need to replace the sponge bar. If the machine has been sitting unused for so long, it's probably not good anymore. The carriage should glide more smoothly, without the needles jumping up. I appreciate being able to see how to thread it; it's quite different than my LK150!

Knitting machines aren't necessarily for making simpler projects... they are more complex industrial machines that can be used for making more complicated projects.

i have just bought this knitting machine (used). I am trying to get it to work and have a problem. It tells me to set the 30 middle needles to b to set the tension and then pass over it and back. When I do this I do not get pass the first 5 needles and it gets stuck and will not i doing something wrong or it is broken?:(
