  • Toyota knitting machines use a special design sponge bar for machines that use extension rails. If you want to use extension rails with your Toyota machine, you will need to rebuild your old sponge bar or modify one of ours to work with your machine. No sponge bars are commercially available that work with Toyota extension rails.
  • Brother KH-120, Bulky 8 and Studio/Singer SK8, Bulky 8 and SR-20 needle retainer bars (sponge bars) are no longer made However our Brother Bulky 8 & SK120/121 Sponge Bar Kit has the material needed to rebuild your old 1/8" wide x43" long retainer bar.
  • Many knitting machine ribbers were originally sold with a solid plastic bar - these are no longer manufactured. Your plastic bar should work OK for many years, however, a regular sponge bar will work better for lace and other fine knitting - our sponge bar is a drop in substitute for the original plastic ribber bar.

Sorry, no export of sponge bars due to the sponge bar length.
