ramona-quilter Posted February 5, 2006 Report Share Posted February 5, 2006 I noticed my back was a bit sore last week after using my very first panto. I knew I was tense but not that tense. So I came to the forum and found that my machine might be a bit low. I am almost 6 feet tall, I could almost straddle the backing roller. On the back, the bottom of the table top was just a couple inches above my knees. The old forum post said that the backing roller should be waist high. Duh, so that's why people call it the belly bar. So my husband raised it. It still did not come to my waist. He raised it again. It now sits just below my waist. It was 4 inches too low. In the process, he leveled the machine. And wow it just glides now and no backache. Even these old posts help. If only the forum knew where I lost my tape measure.....
