Because the newer model Bernina knee lifts look like they'd be so much better (because they curve outward) than the standard-issue lift that comes with the 830, I emailed Bernina to find out if any of the newer models' knee lift would fit the old-style 830, and they said yes, that the knee lift from the 1130 would fit. Hooray! Now all I have to do is find one!

Glad you got good news and shared it.

Knee lift bars occasionally come up on eBay. Good luck!

Please let me know how it works for you when you find one. I just bought an 830 record without a knee lift. Thanks for sharing!

There's an original knee lift on eBay right now for about # $64.00 including shipping, also a newer style from Japan for about $48.00 with shipping. Seller claims the one from Japan fits 1000 & 1200 series, so I think I can assume it will fit the 1130? Hesitant though. Haven't been to the Bernina Dealer yet ...

The reason I don't like the original is that its too close to my leg and am hoping the newer version would "fit" better. If you're pencil-thin the original probably would be OK-ish.

Judy,

I'm pretty sure a Bernina dealer can adjust the position of the knee lever. Think of a clock face and if the knee lever is sitting at 8:00 they can adjust it to sit more at 6:00. Might be worth a call to your local Bernina dealer.

I bought a new knee lifter for my Bernina Record 830 about 2 years ago for about $50.00 at my dealer. They had one in stock.

Wow, that's a good surprise -- think I better get myself to the dealer ...
