  1. Yesterday
  2. I am also having recurrent bobbin problems with my 880. Its a major limiting factor. I just had my machine serviced, including fix of the bobbin problem, get it home, and sure enough I was getting a bobbin error and could not run anything. Problem is I live 50 miles from the nearest Bernina shop, and each servicing requires 200 miles of to and from driving.
  3. Last week
  4. Sue: I checked the wheels on my Ult 2 yesterday. The OEM wheels have an effective diameter about 3/16" larger than the Edgerider Gammill set. I say "effective" because the profile of the wheel face is different, and depending what type rail they run on, they will sit higher or lower. Since the change is for each set (machine, carriage), the total height might be as much as 3/8" I think on your rails, it would be less than that. On my rails, I think the difference was about 3/8", but I can't really remember, and can't tell from just looking at the wheels. If you're willing to risk the cost of the Gammill Edgerider set, I think they will work on your set up. In addition to the wheel set, you will need to replace the wheel mounting bolts. The bolts that comes with the Gammill set are are metric, while the bolts on your Lenni are imperial (or at least they are on my Ult 2). The hub of the Edgerider wheel is just over 1/4" thicker than the OEM wheel, so you'll need to buy 8 bolts each a quarter inch longer than the original. ( I don't remember if they are all the same length or not). The bolts are standard 1/4 x 20 so most any hardware store should stock them. The Edgerider wheels are two row bearing wheels with a significantly wider base which makes them much more stable and durable than the OEM wheels. You will notice the difference when they are installed. The precision of my quilting improved significantly when I put them on my Ult 2. It also improved noticeably on my Gammill Classic when I installed a set on it. (having the two machines is how I became familiar with the Gammill designed set) I'm curious, so risking the purchase price of a set of aftermarket wheels wasn't a problem for me. In fact, after I fitted my Gammill with Edgerider wheels, I replaced them with another brand of aftermarket wheels. Not much difference, but both aftermarket sets were much better than OEMs. Hope this helps. Jim

  6. Roni - it's best if you update the title of the thread to include the word "SOLD" so this is obvious to anyone searching in the forum.

  8. You can contact APQS directly from the contact page on the main website. They can share the manual with you. They will also help you troubleshoot your issue - even if you are not the original owner of the machine. I purchased a +10 yr old Lenni last summer and they have been very helpful with any problems I've had.
  9. Probably available from your local hardware store. I know I can find them at Lowe’s in Canada. I suggest taking the old one with you to match up or at least make note of the amperage and the length of the old one, also it must be a slow blow or time delay type. Nigel
  10. I have an Millie which is 2007 (I think). When its in stitch regulator mode it has just started to race and break threads. It sew fine for an inch or so and does it again. I watched the video and adjusted the wheels but its still happening, its driving me crazy and its scary. Am I able to download a more comprehensive manual in PDF than the one supplied please, maybe that will give clues. All suggestions welcome.
  11. My husband found a blown fuse and a replacement in the tray, it’s working again! Is the fuse something I can get locally, or do I need to order is from APQS?
  12. I was sewing and hit a seam and broke the needle, when I did the machine shut off. I’ve checked to see if I switched a breaker, but other things work in the outlet. Is there some kind of reset button I’m missing? I bought the machine used.
  13. Is this machine still available? I would like to speak with you to get more information. For instance, does the machine have a bobbin winder which runs while the machine is working?
  14. Quilter put together a 60x80 quilt top from 10 appliqued squares I had. I picked out matching fabric for front and back of quilt and paid for it. Quilter took squares and completed a beautiful top. I took it to another quilter (the first quilter recommended) to do actually quilting of front and back. She charged $100. I returned quilt to first quilter to complete edging and adding a label I purchased from etsy.com. She does not know what to charge me and I certainly don't know. Can anyone help me since I have no idea what to pay. I did ask her at the beginning what she charged but she said she would figure it out. But, this was not the case. I need help with paying her a fair amount for her work. Thanks! She's bringing it by in four hours.
  15. I have a Hartley Fence for sale. I have never used it. I have a Millennium longarm quilting machine with the bliss table and an Intelliquilter and do not need this tool. Price is negotiable. Contact me at grannysgr8@gmail.com. I'm located in Peoria, IL
  16. https://forum.apqs.com/topic/31595-george-on-a-longarm-table/?tab=comments#comment-449470 Not sure it's really feasible. I expect the carriages for use with domestic machines may not be large enough to hold a George machine. You'd have to look at dimensions and weight limits. George has an 18" throat space and weighs 35 lbs. You may be better off selling your current frame and getting a used APQS machine (Lenni/Lucey/Freddie/Millie).
