>Some time ago I made a cast on comb for the Bond knitting machine.
In the video I made about it at the time I used an e-wrap cast on.
I would like to be able to just use ravel cord and hang the comb on it but it won’t work due to the fact that the hooks on the comb are catching on the wire guide on the carriage. I don’t know if this would be a problem with the USM carriage as it has no wire but I don’t know exactly what the carriage is like.
I have found it works OK using the elastic thread as the weight of the comb pulls it down enough for the carriage to move across without catching.
Here’s a video I made showing how to cast on this way:
There may be an easier way to do it but as yet I don’t know what it is!
Talk to you later,
