1/26/23 UPDATE: We have a price!

This past week has been busy… I went to visit our man in machining, and he gave me a price. Finally, actually, I am so very grateful to him for taking this long to consider his costs. It shows me that he’s spent countless hours figuring out the best way to make each and every part of the Tru-Knit. His thoughtfulness tells us that he’s in this for the long haul. Getting geared up to make these parts is quite an undertaking. All of his machines are 2018 and newer models. His shop is impeccable, and his parts are like none others I’ve seen in machine shops. He’s come up with brilliant ways to make these machines and make them knit so smoothly. Ok, enough verbiage.

Here’s the low-down:

The Tru-Knit Circular Knitting Machine will come with:

  • Tru-Knit Circular Knitting Machine
  • One Cylinder, your choice 48, 54, 60, 64, 72, 80 or 84
  • One Ribber
  • One Ribber Dial, to match cylinder choice.  48, 54, 60, 64, 72, 40 or 42
  • Your choice of 1:1 ratio or reduced ratio crank handle
  • 100 cylinder needles
  • 100 ribber needles
  • Stack of 3 weights
  • Spring extender
  • 4 heel forks* and weights
  • Crescent tool*
  • Slotted Silver Bullet Yarn Carrier
  • Slotted Yarn Mast Topper with Heel Spring
  • Digital Counter*
  • Buckle*
  • Allen Wrenches needed for the Machine
  • Red Pick
  • Oil
  • Setup Bonnet
  • Latch Tool
  • Machine Lock
  • One cone of project yarn, the remainder of the sample sock cone.
  • One cone of waste yarn

A ribbed knitted sample with a ribbed heel will be knitted on the machine and included with the shipment. The sample will be a sock with a toe, knit at my preferred sock tension. If the knitter so chooses, he or she may keep all adjustments the same and use the sock sample provided to judge the length of the sock they would need in order to make a sock that fits. That’s provided one doesn’t get it out of the box and begin turning screws and making adjustments before knowing what the adjustments actually do. All screws are hex heads, so you can’t just go turning knobs and changing things accidentally.

$2950 for the total package.

Pay with a check, and the price is $2850.
Shipping is not included. If delivered or picked up, applicable sales tax will apply. (Sales tax if you pick up in CG MO would be about $185)  Shipping is always less expensive than sales tax. (the machine and goods will ship in two boxes. It should be around $40, unless you live on the other side of the Rocky Mountains, around $60.  International shipping via USPS will be exact cost of the shipping.

Additional cylinders $250 
Additional Ribber Dials $130                         

Cylinders Available 84, 72, 64, 60, 54 & 48  Ribber Dials Available 42, 72, 64, 60, 54, 48 All cylinders will have a ribber stop pin installed on them.

*These items can be personalized at no charge, or they can come with the Tru-Knit logo.        

There are no hidden charges, such as, “well, if you want a cylinder spring for your machine, it will be an additional cost.” I didn’t list a cylinder spring above, but it does come with a cylinder spring. You’ll need a table and a light to get this bad boy knitting. Tables are conveniently available on

The Tru-Knit has two screw knobs on the bottom of the machine that clamp to a table up to 1″ thick. It is shown on the solid oak table that I sell on CSM Supplies. This table is solid, with no wobble and made for a circular knitting machine. Check it out over at
