This is part of a KnitSmart needle bed, this is from the 52-ndl
Afghaner that I bought after my girls expressed an interest in knitting. Unfortunately,
the interest didn't last all that long (sniffle) so it has not even been put
together. I figured I'd keep it just in case - they might get into knitting
again later (hope, hope)! This is also in sections like the Bond and there is
a continuous needle strip, well, actually, there are two, but they fit very
nicely into the recessed part and I don't think they will come off very easily.
Because the part with the number strip extends past the needle retainers, you
cannot use the ISM carriage on this bed unless you made some adjustments, maybe?
Each section of the bed has 26 needles and also two pre-drilled
holes underneath so that if you added on additional sections, you could still
clamp the machine to the table at the ends. There are no metal rods, but the
sections fit together very much like the Bond does.
