MYSTERY MACHINE: ERIKA LINKER




A friend of mine gave me this machine. It is called a linking machine and is used to sew two pieces of knitting together. It was made by a company named Erika and she bought it sometime in the 1980s. My friend explained in general terms how the machine works, but doesn't really remember the details and no longer has the manual. An online search has not turned up any information. If anyone can give me any help, I would appreciate it.

  1. Hi,
    Have you found any help with this Erika Linker? I have one too. Sure would like to find a manual. Nothing on google at all.
    Let me know if you find something and I'll do the same.
    Cheers,
    Katy

    or search You Tube "Erika Linker".
    My problem is, I do not have a working pedal. The machine's motor will not work without it.
    Could you post a picture of your pedal?
    Better still, does anyone have an idea of which company made this machine?

  5. Hello. Just wondering if you still have that linker and if so, if it is in use or collecting dust? I need one, so just thought I would check. Thanks. tanyamara@myway.com
