Brother knitting equipment
Nottinghack has some Brother™ knitting equipment that we use for workshops.

Books and manuals
Brother KH-881 knitting machine
The user manual for this machine is available on the Brother FTP site. It is identical to the manual for the KH-860 (73MB).
Brother KH-910 knitting machine
We've recently received a donation of a Brother Electroknit machine. It reads patterns drawn on mylar sheets instead of using a punch-card reader. The machine has been very well looked after and includes the full manuals.
Ribber attachment KR-850
Nottinghack has a ribber that we have not used yet. This is a large attachment that adds a second bed of needles to the knitting machine and allows you to use more techniques.
Linker attachment KA-8310
This attachment allows you to quickly join together two pieces of knitted fabric. The user manual for the linker is inside the box.
Transfer carriage KA-8300
We have not used this attachment yet. We think it can quickly transfer a piece of knitted fabric from one needle bed to another. It is probably intended for use with the ribber attachment. There is a user manual for the transfer carriage inside the box.
