  1. THANKS SO MUCH YOU GUYS!!! they were fantastic right after installation. now they feel like Im pushing a truck.. I will clean them first and see if it helps.. If that doesn't work I'll try adjusting. have a great holiday weekend everybody!!
  2. Hi Quilters! Just wondering if the M and M wheels wear out/down and if so can you readjust or do they need to be replaced? Ive got a lot of drag lately (or do I just* need* a new machine with the Bliss system??? lolololol... I know I *want* one !! My Millie is an 04!
  3. lol!! thanks guys!!! my tension looks pretty crappy... but so far crunch!! think I'll replace the crankshaft on my tractor next week!! haHAHAHAHAHAHA.............:PNOT!!! THANKS for the" applause".....!!! ( is this day over yet????
  4. DONE!!!!! ........ I think...(?).... I did get it off by myself and did notice a fine line between getting the shaft deburred so the assembly "moves freely" but not too freely.Also getting the new one ON was a challenge untill I sort of twisted/screwed it on. That wasnt mentioned in the instructions but needs to be considered. a MAGNIFYING VISOR /HEADPIECE REALLY HELPS TOO along with a decent light source,a small metal file and 3 different long handled screwdrivers. Remove pets,spouses and small children that may interfere with ease of movement and patience levels(!!!!!) :PAll that is left now is to get the screws "man tight" and oil new assembly. I have tested stitching in manual VERY SLOWLY on a piece of batting but still afraid of that "metal on metal" CRUNCH!!! Rewarded myself with 2 BLT sandwiches and a summer shandy.I'm TOAST!!
  5. THANKS Jim! the shaft feels pretty smooth but I still cant get the replacement to slide on easily. I am going to check the replacement and it's screws before I file the shaft!! ( this is why I posted) thanks again!!
  6. WISH ME LUCK!! I'm goin in....... gonna replace the hook assembly that I broke on my Millie!!!!! CONSIDERING this is the only MAJOR thing I have had to deal with since I got it in 04......I should be grateful!!? Maybe I should have cup O coffee #2 first??? Happy Sunday!!

  11. I think it\'s more of the INCORRECT ENGLISH used than just the repeated phrases for me. Ain\'t got none,double negatives and especially people who are your "boss"using this language. Repeatedly mispronounced (basic ) words make me nutty(er). OH OH OH the UPTALKING?????!!!!!!!!!!! (I almost forgot? Are you asking a question or making a statement????????????):mad: yadda yadda..........
