Sources for Studio Knitting Machine Manuals (and some info on Brother and Passap machines too)
If you have lost your manual or bought a machine without a manual here are a few places to look for them. (Actually, older machines often had only one manual and newer machines have an operational manual and a knitting manual, so sometimes you are looking for one and sometimes for two. Ribbers have one manual.) If the machine is newer try a dealer or distributor. If it's older 301, 303, 313 etc., then you will probably have trouble buying an original manual and will have to settle for a photocopy.
There is, of course, Ebay, but there is also a couple of Yahoo Groups that you can join. "knitting-forsale", "knittingmachines", "Singer360-700" and "SingerStudioMachineKnitters" Or if you are in the UK you could join "ukmachineknittingmeetingroom"
Once you are a member you can post an e-mail saying that you need to buy a manual or if the machine is really old you'd be glad of a photocopy (paying all costs naturally).
