  1. Wow. This is a steal if I ever saw one. I'm surprised that it hasn't already sold. Zeke.
  2. You didn't mention the thread guides. Check the one above your needle for a groove. You also might try putting a scrap of batting above the cone of thread in the first thread guide. Zeke.
  3. Let me see what I can do for a manual. That link did a whole lot of nothing. Sorry. Zeke.
  4. 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.
  5. You can also just zip tie them to the front axle if it's close enough. Zeke.
  6. Thank you Jeannie. We're off to get BBQ at the 521. Take care and call if you any Maintainance work. Zeke.
  7. Yaw, just do it. My best Arnold impersonation. Zeke
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. I feel for you. I had my 5,6 and 7 done back in 96. Not fun doing nothing, but recooping. Zeke.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
