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
