Purchased new, no space to set it up, stored in original box in bedroom. Finally have the space but too old and tired now. Would like about $700.00 with everything included......the Lace carriage alone is about $200. This machine has only ever made squares and rectangles! Sad but true!

Wanted:- Josephine who lives near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada is looking for a CB1 for her Brother KH970 knitting machine. If you have one for sale please contact her at
For Sale: Jo-Anne on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada has for sale a Passap Duo 80. It was lightly used and in great working condition when she bought it 15 years ago from the previous owner. However, she set it up once and then life got in the way and it has been stored in a dry spot ever since. The machine is in its original box and so is the Deco and all accessories. That is a big plus, not only because it means the machine has been well cared but also if you move house you can pack it safely for the move. If you are not familiar with the Passap Duo 80 it is a true double bed machine - main bed and ribber are permanently attached. This machine really shines when knitting tuck or double jacquard. Uses 1 to 4 ply cone yarn (4 ply is about the thickness of fine baby yarn). As you can see from the photos it appears to be in immaculate condition. Asking price is $700 but open to offers. Give Jo-Anne a call at 250-931-5588 to find out more. Since it's a heavy machine pick up would be preferred. Shipping is extra but can be arranged.
