  1. Not that we've been here for about six months I was wondering if any of the Longarmers here have any trouble with their machines and the humidity. I'm used to California weather and it's a dry hot heat and I was always in the garage quilting. Do any of the quilters here have their longarm sin their garages or do you quilt indoors. We're now in a house and I might be back in the garage due to space issues. What are your thoughts. We had the machine in the apartment for six months and had no issues even with the windows open most of the time. Zeke.
  2. Hi Ann. Did that not help you going to the edit page and finding the box in the lower right corner? That's where most of that type of problems are. Zeke.
  3. You can also just zip tie them to the front axle if it's close enough. Zeke.
  4. Thank you Jeannie. We're off to get BBQ at the 521. Take care and call if you any Maintainance work. Zeke.
  5. Yaw, just do it. My best Arnold impersonation. Zeke
  6. Cory. The take up rollers are an inch and a half in diameter. The 2"ers didn't come into play for a few more years later with the Millennium. Anyways, the person buying your machine may have to spend a couple to a few hundred bucks for the take up. Then they would have to spend about 50 bucks on canvas for the take up leaders. Also, be careful that your machine doesn't fall off the table. The inside take up prevents that from happening. I sold mine about 8 years ago for $3000, but that was with the take ups as well. It's your choice and now your machine, but how you going to demonstrate how it quilts without take ups. I would suggest that you find yourself a machine shop that could help you out with the take ups. Zeke
  7. Wow, I didn't know that I needed CQ support. And I'm not upgrading to the IQ just yet. Maybe later, I don't know. How did the humidity of the Carolinas go to support for the CQ. Strange. And I thought I was pretty damn good at figuring out most CQ,s, and IQ,s. I once had a gal in California call me the CQ guru, because every time she had a problem I could fix it without much effort. Still can. Anyhoo, gotta go, me pillow is calling me. Zeke.
  8. I feel for you. I had my 5,6 and 7 done back in 96. Not fun doing nothing, but recooping. Zeke.
  9. KP, it's not really a wiggle stitch. It's a straight stitch as close to the edge as I can get. I've never done a wiggle stitch, but it does sound interesting. I have an UI and I set my speed at 3. Not too slow and not too fast. Just right for the purpose. Zeke.
  10. Oh, and Southern. Not unless you speed up your motor and your computer movement, but that can be very bad. You know, needle breakage and the possibility of ripping the quilt. Be patient, go with the flow. Zeke.
  11. Yep. Self taught as well and from watching a APQS and Ken Quilt video over and over again. That was back in 94 and on a Ken Quilt short arm 622. Wow, the memories. Zeke.
  12. Sorry mom. I'm no help with the quilt path. I'm a Compuquilter guy. I've only seen it worked at a show. Good luck finding someone to give you a hand. Zeke.
  13. Gator, you don't live that far away. Virginia is just a hop skip and jump away. Zeke.
  14. Thanks for the advice Carol. We shall see what happens when I get everything set up. I just might step down to a 10' table from a 14'. I'm going to have to reconfigure my carriage or the new table first. I have my brain working already on this one. I did something like this 15 years ago with another machine maker and it worked out for the better. Keep your fingers crossed. Zeke.
  15. Yes, I disconnect. I've gotten so used to it, it like second nature. It's in my routine. Zeke.
  16. Oh yah. Totally awesome and primo good. Zeke.
  17. Hey Corey. You might want to start with an asking price first and go from there. Looks like my old workhorse from way back when. It's still running strong and about the same age. I seen them for sale from $1100 all the way up to $4000 depending on what it come with. Good luck. Zeke. You might want to invest in a laser for the sale as well. Makes it more desirable for those whom like them. I made mine and Hotwired it to the machine. They come battery operated and hard wired.
  18. 1/8 the an inch. Nah!!!! As close to the edge as I can, almost off with a regular stitch. This way there will be no over lapping when the pressed foot comes back over the edge. I hate that. It takes a little practice, but once you learn it, it's cake mon. Zeke
  19. Snot!!!! Zeke.
  20. Thank you Sharon and Misa. Though my garage doors aren't insulated I think it will do just fine. Thanks again for the input. I thought it might be a tad different here in the southeast compared the the west. I'll just have to relearn with the humidity. Zeke.
  21. Great. Thank you so much. I will be in touch very soon. Zeke.
  22. Ok. Great. Thank you. Zeke.
  23. Hi. This is zeke. Can you hold it for me. I'll take it. Our house will be ready in the middle of July. I'm at 916-689-4992. We just moved to North Carolina near Charlotte. I'm also at ztrbrg@yahoo.com
  24. Hey lady. How are you and is your machine called a "PDQ "? And is your table adjustable? Zeke.
