New to Me MK-70 Knitting machine

This one is special and one of the few that I don't have  and always wanted.   It folds up to the size of a sewing machine and is the only mid-gauge punch card machine (except for its twin HK-160 that doesn't fold up.)   I bought one last year but it broke in shipping (sad, it was in beautiful condition and even with insurance I had to pay for the shipping that broke it).  But 3 members of my knitting guild emailed me on Sunday and told me there is one on ebay.   So I couldn't resist.  It works - for stockinette at least.  I haven't tried other functions yet.  Needs a real good cleaning too.
