Silver Reed Knitting Machines

Silver and Silver Reed on this page will be considered the same. Silver is simply an older name for the Silver Reed company. The names below are given based on the actual writing on the machine. Silver Reed also released its knitting machines under Singer and Studio names. Silver/Silver Reed also has a line manufactured under My “Studio” nickname.

So, all those model numbers are interchangeable even though the names might differ. If you don’t see a model number of interest here, check the Singer and Studio pages.

If not mentioned, the flatbed machine is metal.

Silver Reed knitting machines, especially, metal flat-beds, have somewhat different mechanisms than other knitting machines (although there are some overlaps). Thus, they sometimes need a different approach to handle carriage problems than machines might. Some of them are covered in my article.
