    Gros Beckert needles

    Hi, I ordered these from Superior Threads less than 2 years ago. The label has a red bar across the top of the label. I will try to type this in exactly as the label reads. 776362 10 Nm 110/18 134MR 4.0 DP x5MR 1955 MR R B1K646 AE At the bottom right corner is that black box with all the funny lines for you to snap a photo on your phone and it takes you right to the product. I forget what those squares are called. I have this on good authority - talked with Karen McTavish and she said there was a changeover when the company was sold, and the needles are just a bit different. I had used these needles for years in my Ultimate 1, and for a long time in my stitch regulated Freedom. Its just this particular order of 13 packs that don't fit my machine and Karen said they must be the transition period needles during the company sale and changeover. I'm just trying to not lose my shirt here - if no one can use them, its a huge waste of needles. I'd even give them to someone if they want to give them a shot. I hate to throw away that many packages of needles, but I may just have to. I wouldn't be able to send them out for about 10 days as I have some stuff coming up where I won't be available for about a week. Thanks for you input!

    Gros Beckert needles

    Hello Everyone! I have 13 packages of MR4 that will not work in my Freedom. They should work fine in the Ultimate 1 as they are from before Gros Beckert went through a change over. If anyone is interested in these, I'd like to pass them on to someone to use them up. I have $104.00 in these and would be happy to sell them for $50.00, plus shipping. Anyone interested?

  8. Hi All, I'm putting my APQS Freedom up for sale. It runs great! Stitch regulated, has new white table that is Bliss compatible. Offering 5 Pantographs and 5 spools of thread with the machine. Has the mushroom handles. I contacted APQS as to what price is fair market value. I was told $9500 to $10,000, so I've just reduced the price to $9,500.00. She is ready for a new home.

    I am really annoyed

    Well, Its resolved, Thank Goodness! I didn't have the machine threaded properly for Omni - you only use 2 holes on the thread guide, not all 3. It also was an entire pack of bad needles. Karen figured it out, by going over everything with me one step at a time. Am so appreciative to have such a great resource close by. I'm loaded and quilting! YEA!!

    I have the machine on a surge protector when it is on. When its off, it is always, always unplugged. I have a regular routine about that before I walk away from the machine.

    I've checked everything that I can think of. So frustrating trying to get any work done. Tomorrow is another day.

    I am really annoyed

    Hi Everybody, Well, we are post DW 40 bath and cleaning. When I first turned her on this afternoon, all was ok electrically. Well, after leaving her on for a while, while cleaning, when I touched my handles, the lights flickered and the machine appeared to be off for a moment, then came back on. Happened twice. I finished cleaning her up, oiled all the necessary places - including the bobbin. Changed needle again. Rethreaded from scratch. Tested her on muslin/batting scraps, all appeared good. So, I went to stitch my basting line, got half way across, thread broke again. Sigh - - I called Karen McTavish and left a message. Hopefully I will hear from her tomorrow, didn't expect any reply tonight. Am wondering if its electrical or what - out of my depth here. Will wait to hear from Karen, and from maintenence in Iowa tomorrow. Am planning a trip to Iowa with her Wednesday if necessary. So, that is where she stands at the moment.

    Hi, Well, so far I have my machine getting a good bath with WD40. Have let this sit for several hours and now that I'm home from grocery shopping, am going to go up and finish the deep clean. I take very, very good care of my machine, so this whole thing is a mystery to me. Am going to work on all of your suggestions and will post later tonight on how it all goes. Thanks so much for the input - with customer quilts waiting, these sorts of issues make me a bit nuts. Don't want to let my customers down, or delay them in any way.
