  1. I’ve watched all the videos on how to repack the gearbox with grease, but they involve removing the head and flipping the machine upside down. Unfortunately, I just upgraded to the Intelliquilter and with all the extra add-on electronics, I don’t think it would be possible for me to remove the head from the rails without a big IQ mess. I’ve also read that repacking can be done from below, though this isn’t optimal. My problem is that the machine is over 10 years old and I live in Las Vegas (hot, hot, hot) and it developed an air bubble this week, one the size of a quarter. I opened it up from below and mushed the grease around but I’m sure that the gearbox isn’t as full as it should be. And the grinding noise went away, but I need to insert more grease into the box while it is mounted on the frame. Any ideas? My desperate thought was piping it in via a pastry bag, or tube of some sort, with one screw remaining in the cover plate so that I can just swivel/pivot the plate enough to insert the grease....then somehow mush it around without it all falling out to the floor...lol...help!
  2. **I think they are all sold** I think I have a buyer for the remainder of the pantos. I'll let you all know if anything happens as soon as I know...thanks to everyone for purchasing some great pantos!! Vic
  3. **UPDATE** New panto list as of June 13th...$9 each plus shipping https://drive.google.com/file/d/10cZ-EoBhsuipg7k2vzst7aRl_p8EL9Fo/view?usp=sharing I still have over 80 left to sell. I'll be out of town 6/14 to 6/16 so any orders that come in will be processed on 6/17. Thanks! heatonvic@gmail.com
  4. **UPDATE** New panto list as of June 12th....$9 each plus shipping. https://drive.google.com/file/d/16TRm2NvZ0klP2sdUMk4g5852v4n8iGjE/view?usp=sharing Vic heatonvic@gmail.com
  5. **UPDATE** I'm going to split up the pantos and sell them individually for $9 plus shipping. I can bill through Paypal and ship ASAP. The link below shows the updated list of what I have left...thanks! Pantos for Sale June 9 Vic heatonvic@gmail.com
  6. I just upgraded to the Intelliquilter and I'd like to sell my stash of pantos (as a group, if possible). I have 152 paper pantos intended for a longarm (not mid-arm or short-arm pantos). Probably 80% have never been used or even unrolled. I'd like to get $1,200 and I'll pay shipping in the USA. I've attached a link to a PDF file showing all the pantos (with thumbnails) as well as a pick showing them all bundled up so you get the idea of how many there are....if you buy them all, I can send you the Word document with all the pantos as well. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fjPLMGYMu6BTlLKvS03QeUIixYW9jG1_/view?usp=sharing If you have questions, you can e-mail me at heatonvic@gmail.com. I'd rather not split them up unless it proves impossible to sell as a bunch. This is a great deal as the retail cost of all these would easily be double my price plus shipping. If you are a new longarmer, this is the opportunity to get a great bunch of pantos for half the retail price. I've been longarming for 14 years and I think I picked ones that were attractive and that customers would enjoy.
  7. Hi Vic,

    I would love to join your Longarm Group, I live in Centennial Hills, North West Las Vegas.

    Thank you
