Default SK840 Jams with Ribber

Hi all, I'm at my wits end. I have an sk840 and I want to do a double faced jacquard. So I bought a srp60n ribber to do the backface. Whenever both the main carriage and the ribber carriage knit at the same time the carriage gets almost impossible to move across.

I have to admit that I am incredibly new to knitting. Does anyone have any ideas why this may happen? I have all the settings like the manual but feel maybe I am setting up something wrong. Or if you could point me in the direction of a tutorial that would be great?

FYI If I set up the carriages so only the main carriage or only the ribber needles knit then its fine, its only when they knit at the same time.

Thanks,
Dan

Probably the sponge bar in the main bed.

Sounds like your ribber is too high. Have a look on www.needlesofsteel.org.uk under downloads, there's a pdf there on how to lower the ribber. It's a one time only adjustment.

Hi Dan,

Could you fix it ?? I have the same knitting machine and the ribber bed too since few months ago and I have the same feeling.

Thanks,

Miquel
