Meccano French Knitting Machines  

This album contains images of several French Knitting Machines (FKMs) I have built, the first in 2012, the most recent in 2014. After the first intermittent-motion FKM, all subsequent FKMs have run continuously.

Developments along the way have included ring feed yarn distribution, cop yarn storage, pinch roller exiting, multiple yarn knitting, replacement of rug hooks with knitting machine hooks allowing substantial miniaturisation and, most recently, horizontal knitting.

Thanks to international co-operation all this has been achieved in just on two years!

You can find General Model Descriptions for French Knitting Machines in Constructor Quarterly, issues 98, 102, 103 and 104. You might need some good Meccano knowledge to be able to build them though as they aren't full, step by step instructions. You can buy Constructor Quarterly here http://constructorquarterly.com/pmwiki.php?n=Site.Order

Hello, I am new to meccano, but am finding that for my small business I would like to make a french knitting machine to help expedite manufacturing. Is there a specific Meccano kit or instructions to make a simple 2 needle french knitting machine?
