Sock knitting machine/ Circular Knitting Machine

I am in search of a Circular Knitting Machine, or sometimes known as a Sock Knitter.

It looks similar to this.

If anyone knows of one let me know. 
Thanks

  2. I looked for one of those for years! I've seen them in action at craft shows, and they are fascinating. Good luck finding one!

  3. When I do the show at Rollag each year, the gal in the booth next to me has several, and she makes scarves and socks with them. They are very nice. Yes, Margaret, if I find one, I will post about it.
    There are new ones available from a company in New Zealand but I am looking for a used one. Likely they are laying in a box somewhere in someone's attic or basement and they don't know what they have.

    1. Thank you Sally, but no, that one is plastic. I am looking for the older cast iron type.

  5. I looked at some youtubes of sock knitting machines and came up with this name and site. Thought you might find it informative: http://www.angoravalley.com/sockmachines/forsale/Legare400-3.html

    Apparently Legare is a name of machines still being manufactured.
