Default Help needed with Knitmaster SK120 part

Hi,
Long time no post. Long time no use Internet Cafe. Have rediscovered
meeting and talking!!!
But now I have a problem that the Spanish can't help me with.
My beautiful baby (Knitmaster SK120 and its ribber SR120) have been
taken out of mothballs, but...
The rubber/sponge in the Needle retaining bars (both ribber & knitter)
have degraded!!
Is there anyone, anywhere who has spare parts or knows of a shop or
someone who may have the bars.
I have tried draft excluder, but that is not even durable enough to get
inside the machine without breaking up.
Heres to hoping.....
Kari

I seem to remember a post on the knittingmachine list that said that since the bar on the 120 was so narrow to take a piece of felt and fold it in half twice and serge the edge. Take a screwdriver and push the serged edge into the channel and then insert it into the machine. There's also instructions on the knittingmachine list for replacing the sponge with weather stripping. email me privately if you need the instruction sheet.
