Another group of Machine Knit America articles that I wrote are posted on The Knit Trees ‘article page’  These are all under the Knitting Machine Basics Category.  This article was written in 1995, but it is applicable to any knitting machine and gives a very polished finished look to your knit projects.
How to Control Your Bind Off gives the detailed instructions of how to do “The Latch Tool Bind Off” for both single and double bed knitting machines which I use on 90% of my knit projects.
