  1. I don't know about that brand but there are Red Snapper side clamps that look like they are similar. I've seen others use them but I don't have them. I'm going the DIY way - I got some paint stir sticks (free) and some leftovers of the grippy kind of shelf liner. The liner goes next to the fabric and then a stick on top and bottom. I clamp the "sandwich" using my two existing clamps on each side. Seems to work fine for me at no cost.

    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?

  4. Contact you local high school to speak with the computer programming or business department. The teacher and students can see what you have and then possibly suggest or even put it all together for you. Recently my daughter's class was Business Academy was asked to help with promoting and developing advertising for local restaurant that was opening. The kids got real world experience and the business got some great ideas and options they used in promoting their new business. The business gave back funds they earned to support the high school program in the future.

    Black table, vertical wheels

    The EdgeRider website does list Gammill Classic as one of the models for the wheels. It seems there is one wheel type for all "non-breeze track" Gammills. They are $160/set - a bit cheaper than replacing the OEM wheels I have. https://www.accomplishquilting.com/store/p485/Edge_Rider_Wheels.html You are correct - the leveler bar and take-up roller are fixed on the frame and not adjustable. Would those Gammill wheels change the height of the machine enough that this would be a problem? On the other hand, maybe I just need to work with what I have. In a photography forum I've been on, they talk about having GAS - gear acquisition syndrome. I'm sure I have GAS. So instead of working on the art (quilting, photography, etc.), I tend to focus on getting more tools, accessories, books, etc. Thanks again for your input, Jim! Have a great weekend. Sue

  6. This is the system I guessed. The after market wheels have much wider bearing placement than the OEM's, and as a result they are much more stable. I hesitate to make recommendations because I'm not sure they would work, but if it were me, I would try to find a set of Edgerider wheels for an old Gammill Classic and see if I couldn't fit them to my Lenni. I have a set of those on my Ult 2 and they work fine. The "V" shape for the Edgerider wheel will solidly position it on the rail so there would be no back and forth movement allowed by the "U" shape of the OEM wheels. I was able to fit a set to my machine by simply buying Imperial bolts and nuts to replace the metrics supplied with the Edgerider set, and adjusting for any machine height change the new wheels made. I don't know whether Edgerider wheels are still available for Gammill Classics machines or not. They also are a bit pricey. I think I paid about $200 for a set 10 years ago. The other issue is the lack of adjustment offered in the Lenni table you have. I built my table so I could adjust the height of my leveling and take-up roller. I don't think the roller height can be adjusted on yours. If you decide to pursue this modification, I'd suggest you contact a Gammill dealer or Kasa Engineering directly to check the availability of the wheel set. If they are no longer available then the whole modification possibility is mute. Good luck. If there is anything more I can tell you, feel free to ask. Jim

  7. Are you quilting in the same direction with every pass? This might be causing your quilt top to shift slightly. Pin or stitch basting would help; or changing direction with every pass.

  8. Your hopping foot pushes the fabric in the direction you are sewing, so as Laura and Connie suggest sew in both directions. Jim

  9. Are your leaders square or have they stretched (doesn't take a whole lot)? Quilting right to left then left to right is a great practice if you are comfortable going both ways. I will be back to check on you all tomorrow.
