Toyota knitting machine list

Toyota knitting machine list below . Because I have put this Toyata knitting machine list together with the help of many internet websites and friends, if you notice anything which is not right or you have more info to add please let me know. I will also update this page as I obtain more info. Also I would love some pics if anyone can supply them 🙂

Toyota knitting machines came in a 4.5mm and 9mm gauge. TOYOTA was also known as ELNA, the accessories, manuals and parts are interchangeable.  Also, the  ELNA 2300 and TOYOTA 650 bulky 9mm machine is the same as the Silver Reed SK155 9mm gauge knitting machine.
