There are some unanswered questions on the message board so I’m re-posting them here in the hope that somebody reading this might be able to help. Any help would be much appreciated.
Hello, I’ve been reading that KM302 is the same as Studio 302 or 303, or Singer 888. I am looking for an optional gold colored needle that is approximately an 6.5mm needle. Do you know of a place that still handles a replacement needle?

Alan asks about the Toyota K55 Linker/Cast Off Carriage:
Hi – I have been trying to use the above linker to cast off the final row of stitches. The problem is, the linker removes the kintting beautifully but does not cast off, the knitting just falls from the machine with open stitches, the same effect as moving the knit carriage along without wool. Does anyone know where I am going wrong. Kind Regards – Alan

And finally, Pauline asks:
I have a brother KH836 and ribber. I have started a 4 ply 1/2 Fisherman’s rib man’s jumper probably 150 times +!!! on the right hand side of the knitting I seem to be dropping the occasional stitch – left side is fine. Ignoring that for the moment, when I get to the shaping on the right where I have to decrease 4 stitches on next two rows as soon as I start to decrease on the right it drops further stitches I have replaced the needles on the right – no change. The knitting is weighted well on both sides – I just cannot get past this hurdle – does anyone have a clue what might be going on – is it me or the machine. Otherwise it knits fine so I don’t think it is the machine. If anyone can offer some help I would be really grateful
