AutoChanger - A Knitting Machine Auto Colour Changer to replace a Brother KRC-900

This project was designed to provide a lower cost replacement for the commercial auto colour changer available from Brother for their 1980's electronic knitting machines.

This work has been a huge undertaking over many years and the newest version is nearly done and for sale.

All through this journey it's been fighting our day jobs and other commitments so we're started a Patreon to keep us focused.

We've pivoted a bit and our blogs days are numbered, but for the moment these links still work:
