|Close-up of stamping on the needle frame.|
|The weights on this knitting machine were patented Oct 29, 1879, according to this cast-in lettering.|
|This is the condition
before restoration. Notice rust on the rod and
discoloration on both brass and steel parts. This knitter
was in much better condition than the 110 needle machine
shown on the other page.
Cleaning, polishing and new needles were all that was needed.
