LK-150 Sponge Only Sponge Bar (needle retainer bar). Intended as replacement sponge bar on Plastic Bed knitting machines such as Singer/Silver Reed LK100,140 & 150. This Sponge Bar does not have a metal backing but it does have a fabric strip on 2 opposing sides - one allows the needles to slide across the sponge without damaging the sponge itself, the cover on the other side helps keep the sponge from sticking during installation plus it helps keep the sponge from melting down into the slot during long term use. Other cheaply made sponges do not have this important feature. Our sponge bar material is made with a special density rubber just like the more expensive metal backed sponge bars, to provide for long lasting use plus it has a sturdy fabric covering on two opposing sides for non-stick capabilities the next time you need to replace it. The material is made especially for knitting machines. It is not weather stripping or craft shop foam. This is genuine sponge bar material is manufactured for use as a knitting machine sponge bar. It is only available in one cut size and length which is approximately one meter long x 12mm wide.
