I recently bought one of these from some who told me it had been in storage longer than he's been alive. He obviously didn't know anything about it and I haven't been able to find anything online (besides one other person selling one and also knowing nothing about it).
I've used a Silver Reed Machine before and was expecting this to be quite a bit more similar than it's turned out to be. The needles are much shorter (2 29/32" by my measurement, including the butt/handle/knob/I-forget-what-it's-called-thingy), the carriage is much simpler (no round spinning brushes [-I'm sorry I forget all the proper terms!]).
I think I've got it set up so that I should be able to do a basic jersey knit but it's not working.
Does anyone have any tips, suggestions, (manuals?!?), ideas, or anything else at all that might help me get this thing working? I could take a picture of the machine if that would help to identify it.

I have an NT-12 manual, but it's honestly not very helpful. It was written by someone who didn't speak English very well, so the instructions are rather confusing, but I'd be glad to scan and send a copy anyway. I've found the 1957 brotherknit is very similar, and that manual is incredibly detailed and helpful when you look at it with the NT-12 manual. You can get the brotherknit manual here:
It's photos of each page, but I just screenshotted it. It's worth it!

I have a NT-12 no manual. Did you ever locate one?
Kim would you share with me?
Does anyone know which machine it is similar to?
I am restoring, cleaning,etc a vintage machine given me and will be ready to knit soon.
Any suggestions appreciated.

Be sure to check out the knitting machine groups on Ravelry ... you may find out information on one of those.
Also, some manuals are available free to download off the Internet; won't hurt to try a search. AND, some companies that are no longer "in business" actually were taken over by other, newer companies that may offer some help. Good luck!
