I am showing you the underside of the Brother 830’s knit carriage with the sinker plate attached. It’s been well oiled, cleaned and, I thought it was ready to go, but one of the screws that holds the very important gears on is missing. Darn!!!
It’s always something with a used machine.
Ah, but fortunately, I read Sandee Cherry‘s book “My Favorite Hints and Techniques” last night and learned that she had intentionally removed her wheel brushes years ago and left them off.
I could “steal” a screw from one of the brushes and use it on the gear.
Saved! So, with hope in my heart I am pushing ahead, planning to teach myself how to use the knit leader with this new skirt project.
At least that’s the plan….
