    Cylinder/Ribber printouts
    These are really great. It gives me the ability to make my own mapping out of placement for my needles.

    Cylinder, Ribber Guide
    It was okay. It wasn’t what I thought it would be. I thought it would be more like if you have this type of cylinder you can use these different ribbers with it. More or less show the different ribbers that can be used with different cyliners. For example: A 72 cylinder can use a 24, 36, 48 or 72 ribber. I hope that made sense.

    I the past I have downloaded some of these and wanted other this time but could never find them so didn’t end up with anything.

    Very informative
    I consider myself a newbie at CSM knitting. That is why I can use all the information that I can get. My only wish is to have a list of possible rib combinations with the cylinders and ribbers available as suggested bu Chet in his Feb 29, 2016 review.

    New Cylinder and New Ribber Fits 1914 – 1925 Gearhart Sock Knitters
    We have a 1925 Gearhart sock knitter that needed a new cylinder and the whole ribber assembly. We bought a 60 needle cylinder and the ribber and tappet assembly and used our original ribber disk. The parts are machined magnificently! Its like you are ordering parts from the original factory if your machine was made between 1914 – 1925. With just a slight fitting of where the ribber “plugs” into our plate it was perfect! The machine knits and ribs better than brand new. We also got the row counter cam and it worked great. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting parts from Earlbacher for your original machine. They are WONDERFUL people to work with!! Stuart and Patty McCaskill
