  1. PENDING SALE 3/18/22. Will update when it is officially sold. ~*~*~*~*~ PICK UP ONLY – $3500 or any reasonable offer. Located east of Indianapolis, IN. Selling my 1994 APQS Ultimate 1 Longarm machine with 26” throat. Includes IS2K Intellistitch stitch regulation on 12’ table. M&M wheels (Jan 2018) and brand new leaders (not in all photos here but I put them on March 7, 2022.) We’ve done some modifications to the table, to include replacing the top with automotive glass (two people CAN lift this table and you have a very sturdy surface and huge light box with it.) Poles are steel, not aluminum, and you do need to raise the pickup bar when you advance the quilt (there is no leveler bar on this table.) Includes laser light in back, and I will throw in a few pantos and some thread. You will get some extra needles, all of my “L” bobbins, a ruler base, a bobbin winder and any other machine specific parts. This machine was purchased by my mother in law in August 1994 and she found she was not able to handle the size of it. While she had it, she did her personal projects. I bought it from her in 2003 and I added the IS2K later that year. It was used for a small business from 2003-2006. Machine was regularly turned on and oiled over the years and I used it for personal projects. It can NOT be upgraded to a computer due to the handle position and the IS2K retrofit. Stitches nicely. IS2K has a single stitch button. There is no thread cutter. There is no warranty by APQS, but they will answer questions about non IS2K items and they have supported me over the years. APQS is an industrial quality machine and I liked this one so much I bought another, which is on its way. Intellistitch is currently on Nolting machines but I have not called them to see if they will support questions on this retrofit. Recommend you purchase a voltage regulator to plug the machine into when you get it home. I have box for machine head. When taken apart, you have two sides, 4 poles (three plus batting bar which is handier than you think), table, carriage, and machine head. Currently located in Carthage, IN. Purchaser is responsible for take down, pickup, transportation, re-assembly and all associated costs. Selling As-Is. NO SHIPPING, NO WARRANTY, NO GUARANTEES by seller. Terms of sale: CASH ONLY. $3500 or any reasonable offer

  3. I know that IntelliStitch (I/S) did make an after market upgrade for the Ultimate 1, but at least since 2017 when I emailed them they no longer have this option. It looks like I/S is only installing the hardware onto new Nolting machines. https://www.intellistitch.com/index.php "We no longer offer IntelliStitch as an after-market upgrade." Is there ANYONE else who can put a stitch regulator on the Ultimate 1? Thanks! PS. I'm not looking to buy a new machine. I really DO like the Ultimate 1, but I'd like to have a little more control over the quilting speed to do custom quilting.
