    >Hello Susan,I just bought a Bond classic machine from a charity shop today.I am not sure about a few things and just wanted to ask you a few questions. As it doesnt mention them in the instruction book or video.How fine and how thick of yarn can I use on this machine?I have 4 keyplates, Which ones do I use for the different weights of yarn?ThanksAaron

    >Hi Aaron, I'm assuming that you have the four clear keyplates numbered 1, 2, 3 and 4 – not the green ones with the dot above the numbers.KP 1 = fine DKKP2 = regular DKKP3 = AranKP4 = ChunkyThese are UK terms, I'm not sure what they are called in other countries.Hope this helps.

    >Try looking on ebay for the Bond magazines and pattern books as they often turn up there.There are lots of Bond patterns to be found online. If you look in my sidebar under 'Useful Sites' you will find links to The Machine Knitter's Treasure Chest and Steph Thornton's site where there are lots of patterns for the Bond.
