As to the quality of Taitexma machines the facts speak for themselves. Not one Taitexma machine sold in the U.S. this year (2012) has been returned for a needed repair. The Rhode Island School of Design has been offering knitting machine classes for many years utilizing many different makes and models. They purchased 6 TH-860 standard gauge punchcard machines and 6 TR-850 ribbing attachments last year. They are evidently quite satisfied by both the quality and performance of these machines as they recently placed an order for 10 more units with ribbing attachments. ~Distributor of Taitexma Knitting Machines
Will the Brother KL116 Knit Leader work on Taitexma TH260, like it does on KH260?
To answer your customers questions the TH-260 is not equipped with either the slots to accept a knitleader or the finger to trigger it. Whether something can be rigged to do so I can't say. Whether the Taitexma is exactly like the old Brother model in feel and construction is subjectivem but in the 3 years I've been selling them I haven't had one come back for repair yet. Also, the Taitexma is available with a ribbing attachment which is a big plus. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks, Peter
