    Ultimate 2

    With the Ultimate II frame, you will have to bring the sides down so the bars are close to the sewing machine head bed. As you rotate the quilt, the sides will have to be adjusted up. Do you have a manual? I sold an Ultimate II to a friend and she might have a book.
  3. Wonderful. So sweet of Roland to pass along the ribbon and evaluation form.

    hopping foot and shank

    Hi, Call Apqs, I've done this and thought it was scary. You have to loosen the collar on the shaft, shove the shaft back and don't turn ANYTHING because the teeth have to line back up when you move that shaft forward again. Remove the hopping foot and then move the shaft forward and tighten the collar back up. Definitely call APQS first before doing this. Michele
  5. Deloa or Dave, Is this system still available?? Thanks Michele

    dying 100% polyester fabric

    Try IDye Poly. Our Joanns carries it. I haven't used it to dye yardage but have used it to make iron on transfers. Dharma's probably has more info on it. Michele

    NQR - Do you make bar soap?

    Sylvia, I make soap and have NOT looked at this video. I agree with what Bonnie says above. Just starting out I think I would make a smaller batch of soap also. I use the Hot process method as I don't care if the bars are ugly, they are just for personal use. I'm glad you found lye, next time I'm at Lowes I'll look and see what they have. Always good to have a second source. I usually get mine from the Mennonite quilt shop. Have fun with making soap and please stay SAFE!!! As you are so sensitive to soap I don't think you should add any fragrance which can be a skin irritant. Just a thought. Let us know how it turns out Michele

    Camp Mowana Return?

    bumping this up so maybe DeLoa will see it. Michele
  11. I went to your blog and see that you are in Ohio. I am moving back to Mansfield Ohio next weekend. If you give me a chance to unpack a little and set up my Ult. 1 with intellistitch you are more than welcome to try it out. At least you could try it out so you know what to or not to look for.

    Looking for accessories

    Hi Pat, Does your Ult 1 need the white ring on the hopping foot to do ruler work. If so I have some stuff and a few of the rings that we can talk about privately. Right now I'm not sure how to post privately but I'll try to figure it out. I'm actually trying to pack because we are moving so I'm not sure if I've packed them or not, but I will look. Michele
  13. Helen, I guess the belt is okay because I did check the one we could access. It is slightly frayed though so I should probably change it anway. I'm not sure how old the I/S is. I bought the machine with it installed in 07. Since Zoltan only lived less than an hour from me he let me run it down to him. He said it was one of the first apqs machines he had done. I don't know when the company started, so between then and 2007. It is a 2001 ultimate 1, so between 2001 and 2006.??? He was extrememly kind to me!!!! That is a great price for the motor. I'll keep you updated when I get the new brushes. The machine is still running and I trust my husband completely when he says I won't ruin the machine by still using it. I must admit he is one smart cookie. Thanks for responding and easing my mind, Happy Thanksgiving, Michele
  14. I will try to be more specific. It is loud growling and vibrating. Sometimes it cuts out completely for a second and then starts up again. Everything is level. Grease has been checked and in my opinion okay. My husbands diagnosis is the motor. I/S did tell me to check and make sure the pulleys are tight but without completely removing all of the I/S from the back of the machine I'm not sure how to check ALL of the pulleys. (the original ones on the machine). I'm scared to death to remove all the electronics to check the original pulleys. Maybe I'll take another look later today. Any advice on that would be helpful. The wrong motor brushes have been sent back and the new ones should be here in 2 or 3 weeks. Hopefully that will fix it. thanks Michele
  15. It looks like Ray fixed his links on his web site. That is a good thing. Michele
  16. Thanks Helen. The link on Ray's sight for the apqs brushes says for the PM8014 the problem is that the when it puts it in the shopping cart it says something else. But if you hit that link it says they are for the 8014. I will look for the belt at the auto store. We actually don't know what is wrong. I was going to try the cheap fix of the brushes before going to another motor. I think my current brushes are okay but I've got to try something. (my husband is the one who thinks it is the motor. There is a growling and bouncing problem and it is so much louder than it used to be.) Everything is level. It is just very frustrating and appreciate you helping me!!! Michele
  17. Chris, I'm a little late to this discussion I couldn't get signed in so I just created a new account. We met at Camp Mowana. I have a Ultimate 1 with intellistitch it works okay. Unfortunately I have been having problems with it and can get NO customer service. So far I can't get any replacement parts. I ordered from their recommended person (quilttech) and did not get the proper parts. They also add a different belt but won't tell me where I can get it and there was no offer to send me one, which I would happily paid for. As it works well, for me it is a BIG problem when I can't get parts. I don't know if the owner is still in Dublin Ohio but he should be able to install also. At this point in time I think your friend would be better off buying a machine that all ready has SR. Michele
