A Magnet Arm can be used to convert a USB BrotherLink 1 to a USB BrotherLink 5, or a USB E6000 Link1 to a USB E6000 Link 2. They add the Interactive Knitting feature to these links so that they can be used with any machine even including non-electronic ones.
An additional magnet arm is also required when interactively knitting patterns made with the Lace Tool on Brother machines (except the KH940 and KH950i when used with a Brotherlink 1) and on Toyota machines. The additional magnet arm attaches to the lace carriage.
The larger arms attach to any carriage, using fabric fastener. The metallic arm is supplied with USB cables and the black plastic arm with serial cables, but they work the same way.
The small arm attaches to the Brother carriages that have a KnitLeader tripper arm. Brother’s lace carriages don’t have the tripper and therefore they require the larger arm that attaches with fabric fastener.
Large metal arm supplied with USB cable links. The screw fixing makes it easily adjustable to fit any carriage.
Large black arm supplied with serial cable links.
Small arm previously supplied with some discontinued serial BrotherLinks.
