Can I remove my quilt top roller

Recommended Posts

I would like to remove my quilt top roller as I float all my quilts.  I do quite a  it of ruler work with the Hartley base, and the base bumps into the top roller quite often, so I’m losing a few inches of quilting space.  I’ve seen in older posts people did this with an accessory called the Texas Hold en Bar, which allowed you to set the brakes.  I have a 2016 Lenni on a 10 foot table, with the bliss upgrade,  thanks so much for any advice.

Can you raise the quilt top bar so that the ruler base doesn't knock into it. If that isn't to your liking, you will have to replace the braking system if you remove it.

Thanks Gail, I’ve looked and it doesn’t look like I can raise it, it just barely touches it, so  I was thinking that perhaps I could just take the canvas leader off, and store it, I think that would give me the extra room to squeeze under the quilt top bar.  I just thought that maybe APQS had an attachment that would replace the whole bar, that way I could always put the quilt top bar back in place, if I decide to not do too much ruler work in the future.  Thanks again,

Thanks Gail, My husband and I looked at it again this morning,  we noticed one side arm was tilted slightly forward, so just realigning the side arms, allowed the ruler base to slide with ease under the quilt top bar.  Such an easy fix, as usual, it ended up being our error. Thanks again for your input, it’s always very helpful!
