  1. 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
  2. Where you are located and contact info might help. Good luck with the sale and enjoy your retirement. Nigel
  3. Thanks for stating your position Mark. I know APQS is not afraid of being compared to the competition but I don’t see anything that makes me think this anything more than a competitor advertising on your forum. Nigel
  4. Peach click on Daniel’s screen name and you will see a way to send a message. That will go straight to his email. Works for most online forums. Nigel
  5. Maybe tell prospective buyers where you are and contact info might help you sell your machine. Nigel
  6. Dawn, Try turning your pig tail guides upside down and rethread. It is common to get a groove worn Into them and the top thread will shred. If you turn them upside down and your shredding stops that is probably the problem. When we had our machines we would change the guides about every nine months. Nigel
  7. In my mind no don’t scrap it parts are readily available and I don’t think the new ones really sew much better. Do you know the manufacturer of the stitch regulator and the computer? The most common aftermarket one was Intellistitch and Intelliquilter. If that is the case there is lots of support available. Let us know what you have or post a picture and we can probably send you in the right direction. My old Ultimate 1 is still going strong daily in someone else’s business, not bad for a twenty five year old piece of equipment. Nigel
  8. Linda Do I assume correctly you are talking about the carriage wheels? If so, the preferred way would be to remove the take up and leveler bars and roll the head off the back of the carriage set it down on some blocks to protect the wheels. To remove the bars loosen the knob underneath the fabric advance motor and slide it off, loosen the Allen screw in the cog that remains on the take up bar and slide it off the remove the Allen bolt at the left end of the take up bar (should only be hand tight) and pull the bar out to the left with two people (it’s awkward by yourself) and place on floor now remove second bar. I don’t remember if any wires other than the encoder have to be disconnected but that only takes a few seconds. It took me longer to type this than it would taken me to remove the head. Or if you are just talking about levelling the table have someone hold the head while the adjustments are being made. I’m like Sue and have many times levelled the table with the head on. Nigel
  9. Did you try the email in the ad? She hasn’t been on here in six months. Nigel
