I have a KnitKing KG93 and would like to know if it has a fuse? I vaguely remember a post about checking fuses. The "Turtle" does work. Hooked up to my Knit King Compu Knit III and it powered up just fine. Did search for Garter Carriage - Garter Carriage fuse - and just Fuses. Read thru all of them, nothing. Is this something I just dreamed up?
Thanks for any info.

The fuse is inside the box of the turtle, meaning the one that 'hangs' on the back of the knitting machine.

Well, shoot. I probably saw a post about garter carriages and the turtle and the word fuse stuck in my mind.

Sigh. Trust me to mix things up.

Thanks for letting me know.

I used to get the fuses at Radio Shack. If you have trouble finding one, PM me.

But you were right- the garter carriage does have a fuse! Be happy you remembered. Sharron

keetza, if you have the information on the type of fuse, could you post it here? I'm sure lots of Garter Carriage owners here would like to bookmark this topic, just in case we need the info at some future time.

Yes the fuse is in the grey box. Buy a few of them because they can go quite quickly if younuse it a lot
