Knitting machines galore since one is never enough, photo tutorials, and knits gone wild

Name That Yarn Sinker Plate Assembly

I stopped by one of my favorite thrift shops yesterday and found this gal all by her lonesome, taped up in a plastic bag.

Anyone know what machine she belongs to?

She predates anything I have. There is only one yarn guide and no way to add a second color unless you remove the first. My guess is an old Brother 210 bulky, but the only one I ever had was sold several years ago and my memory is sketchy at best.

I know what the sinker plate is for!!!! This came with vintage Knitmaster 302 ribbers and was attached to the main carriage. It didn’t join to the ribber carriage, the carriages were moved individually, unlike the faster, more efficient machines. I found evidence here:

Look carefully on the table behind the machine – you will see it.

You have good eyes! Thanks for the info. I’ll have to search Google images to see if any pictures exist for the Knitmaster 302.

Andy is correct and it is identical to the Studio 303 ribber.
