I understand that most mid-arms have an 11-17" throat. I would like to purchase one in the 11-13" range. Would that be too big for your original frame? If so, can the platform be adapted to hold a machine of that size?
I just recently bought some Superior tribal polyester thread that is giving me fits. (I normally use king tut) Do you have any metallic needles for this type of thread, or do you have any suggestions. I keep backing off the tension, and it will go for a while, then it starts breaking the top thread every 10-12 inches. So, I back off the tension again. Should I maybe adjust the bobbin tension?
I have the Voyager 17 and how can I shorten my stitches with this machine? Right now the length are 5 stitches to an inch. I could not find anything about this in the instruction books that came with it.
I am using the Hinterberg Stretch Frame for about 3 yrs. I have had the issue where the machine carriage "jumps the tracks" a couple of times. I heard that puttting two or more supports under the frame on either side will help that problem. Is this right?
I just received my SLR and found out that the carriage I have on my stretch frame is not able to accept the SLR It is my understanding that a new carriage is available . Could you please let me know how I may purchase this carriage and the price.
I understand t hat it is my QBot is supposed to do some tiny locking stitches at the beginning and end of a stitchout. Mine does not do that. I've changed the defaults as per the installation instructions, am I missing something?
I'm trying to get a sense as to how the V17 - Stitch Length Regulator works. When the SLR is functioning and the user is quilting with the machine, does the needle speed automatically come to a stop when the user stops moving the machine or does the user need to turn the machine off to stop the needle?
To use my MQFST I have to slide it out from the wall, and then when I am done I need to slide it back. In moving it the center leg does not stay straight and I have to get under it to straighten it. Is there something that can be done to hold the leg straight and not have to get under it to straighten it back up all the time?
