As we all know knitting can be carried out in two ways, in the main hand knitting and a machine knitting.

There are two types that are available to you, these are the punch card machine and the electronic machine. If you plan to use one just at home, then purchase a standard gauge machine with 200 needles that are 4.5 mm apart. But if you plan to start a home business then buy a bulk machine with 114 needles that are 9mm apart.
The distance between every needle determines the thickness of the yarn that can be used in the brother knitting machine. The yarn will be thicker if the needles are further apart and the closer the needles are together, then the yarn is thinner.
