This is the Scottish Machine Knitters website - you could try emailing them to ask if they know of a similar organisation in Itreland - http://www.scottishmachineknitters.org.uk/Index.htm

Annie and Mrs. Mac, thank you for the trouble you have taken.  I can see another 5 hours on this machine tonight.  I will give the company a ring in Ireland.  Thank you both.  Regards.  Mary ;)

I'm just going to look for a table on Ebay - otherwise I will NEVER get started again!  Remember to post piccies of any work you complete - like Linz does with hers.

I know this topic is old, but wanted to suggest if you still have your knitting machines and are having trouble knitting, try replacing the sponge on the needle bar.  They can be bought direct on ebay, or use double sponge door draught excluding sponge.  The needle bar sponge needs replacing every 2 years regardless of whether or not the machine has been used. 

Also someone was asking about manuals.  These people sell an electric version of many machines for around 3.

I have used them and they are very reliable.

I gave up and recycled it. Thansk for all the help I recevied on here.  :bouquet:  I still have about a dozen cones of various sizes, colours and types if anyone close by wants them - can't post, too bulky and in total would be heavy

doganjo that is a shame.  If no one is able to collect your cones the local charity shops should jump at them.  Over here coned wool is like hens' teeth. 

I found another site for those who have a machine, it has a small forum on it.  But loads of info on various machines.  Worth browsing during one of those periods when the machine chucks the stitches on the floor.
