LT-150

The LT-150 is equipped with our exclusive 2-feed (dual feed) cam system allowing you to knit unique structures that cannot be duplicated on any other CSM.  The dual feed cam system engaged while ribbing creates a unique knitted structure that mimics “brioche” knitting on the inside of the ribbed cuff.

The LT-150 is a robust machine featuring a cast iron frame and mild steel nickel plated knitting components.

The LT-150 dual-feed machine comes with the following:

  • Nickel Plated Cylinder and cone-shaped Ribber (of your choice)
  • Stand with Yarn Shelf and Yarn Mast Assembly
  • Assembly tools - complete set of short arm key wrenches and a Long T-wrench
  • Yarn pick
  • Two sets of Take-Down weights and Two Heel Weights
  • One heel fork (V-hook)
  • Set-up bonnet knit on your machine
  • Operating and Assembly Manual
  • One day of training at our factory

The LT150 2-feed machine is priced at approximately $4,000.00.

LT-150 TRADITIONAL

The LT-150-Traditional is a Single-Feed version of the LT-150, and is a more traditional representation of the antique TUTTLE.  This machine is manufactured with the same quality materials as the dual feed machine.  As a matter of fact, the cast iron base, cylinders and ribber cones are exactly the same.

The LT-150 Traditional machine comes with the following:

  • Nickel Plated Cylinder and cone-shaped Ribber (of your choice)
  • Stand with Yarn Shelf and Yarn Mast Assembly
  • Assembly tools - complete set of short arm key wrenches and a Long T-wrench
  • Yarn pick
  • Two sets of Take-Down weights and Two Heel Weights
  • One heel fork (V-hook)
  • Set-up bonnet knit on your machine
  • Operating and Assembly Manual
  • One day of training at our factory

The LT150-Traditional is priced at approximately $3,200.00.

LITTLE LAMB

The Little Lamb is a compact attachment that is designed to knit socks for infants and toddlers.  This attachment comes with a 36-needle nickel plated cylinder, single feed cam system and reduction adaptors making it compatible with both the LT-150 dual-feed and the LT-150 Traditional machine bases.

This little darling is perfect for using up scrap yarn.  These little socks make perfect gifts and ornaments.
