Vintage knitting machines………1950’s perhaps

Among my stuff reside a couple of Vintage knitting machines. Hubby decided to enhance my knitting style and purchased these. I’ve played with them and it was fun.

The one above has an interesting feature. The carriage handle is a quick clip on and off. Why ? I don’t know. Both are standard gauge. Probably, because fingering and sock yarns were readily available in the stores of that time period.

This one also is functional and I have knit on both machines. I don’t have any manuals for them. I will part ( read that as sell very reasonably priced) with them if that is of any interest to anyone.

They certainly are interesting when comparing to the 30 year old knitting machines that are readily available today.
