    measure the distance between your poles.. that is the largest one.. bigger than that would be over kill.

    You should call the company and ask that question of them. It all depends on how the frame is constructed. I have the same machine on a New Joy frame, but because of how the bottom part of the frame is constructed, that's the largest throat machine I can put on the frame.

    Not only will you want to ask the Grace Co. the biggest throat size, but also the maximum weight the frame carriage can handle. Kepping both size and weight in mind, you can begin searching for a new machine.

    I believe the HQ 16 would fit on the Little Gracie II frame. Call the company, they have a great customer service dept. and can answer that question. I'm pretty sure that's what they told me a couple of years ago.

    I have a little gracie II frame and anything larger than 13 or 15 inches would be a waste. The distance between the top poles is the restricting factor.
