I have a Toyota 787 and I am trying to use the lace carriage for the first time and I don't understand how/when/which direction to move both carriages, if you move the lace carriage by itself how does the punchcard move forward/get tripped?

Any help would be great,

Unless, I'm wrong, the Toyota lace carriage transfers stitches and the main carriage knits them.

Your punchcard should have a little (usually red) backturning arrow in the right margin. This arrow indicates when to use the lace carriage.

The lace carriage doesn't move the punchcard because the lace carriage is simply making transfers, like transfers you could do yourself using the tappet tool.

For Studio machines, the lace carriage knits and transfers at the same time, so that's in a different reality.

I have the lace carriage for the Toyota KS950. I'm not positive if they are the same, but there are 2 types of lace: regular lace and transfer lace. The standard lace is easier - the carriage automatically transfers the stitches, knits and moves the card at the same time. Transfer lace is a little more complicated. You have to watch the arrows on the side of the card and have to turn off the card and let the carriage transfer the stitches before turning on the card again. It's a lot more time consuming, the the lace is beautiful.
