Hello everyone! I'm Finn, the designer maker behind Ashcroft Makers, located in the Scottish Highlands.
I work from my small studio workshop, where I design and make 3D Printed Circular Sock Machines.
The machines have been 3D printed with PLA Plus Filament which is durable and non-toxic. This "Green Plastc" is a bio-degradable type of plastic, manufactured out of plant based resources such as corn starch or sugar cane.
The CSM is easy to use, is portable, lightweight and clamps to any worktop, table or desk. It works in a circular motion with the speed controlled by the handle and can be used in a clockwise or counter clockwise motion. The knitting gauge is adjusted by the tension levers on each side of the casing.
The knitter only has to thread the sock yarn using the tension unit on the machine and you're good to go.
