    Sounds like it doesn't come with the table and my guess is that it doesn't have a stitch regulator for that price, but both can be added...seems like a very good price. I'd check the handiquilter site out to see how much you could get a table and stitch regulator for so you have an idea of what you might need to invest. I have heard their pro frame made out of steel is very nice. It may be a challenge to test it out if they don't still have a table..it can also be set on a sit-down table version. Seems like a good deal if it's in good shape.

    You know what they say - if it sounds too good to be true - it is probably something that you should walk away from. I nearly got stung with just such a "good deal" 3 years ago. Thank heavens I ended up not going for the "good sounding deal" - a HQ 16 for $4,000.00. The little voice in my head kept saying - turn this one down. Plus the woman kept saying she had to have cash... another red flag - because I wanted to give her a money order from the bank. It turns out that the table with the good deal was a homemade one that did not collapse and the stylus was one that the quilter herself made.... HHHUUUMMM!!! I waited and just this spring I purchased a 3 year old HQ16 - in beautiful condition - only about 8 to 10 tops had been completed on this machine - it came with the 12 foot adjustable table - and several of the attachments. It was definitely worth the wait - the machine cost me $5500.00 and it was worth every penny. I love the HQ16 - I was so glad that I waited. Please be careful - money is too hard to come by these days and it would be a shame to end up with a machine that would not be what is promised in the Craigslist ad.

    Good luck - and listen to the voice in your head - you know the one that makes you step back and think through the entire deal.

    Sounds like its a table mounted Handiquilter frame. I had a HQ16 and loved it. Added a Quilters Cruise Control (an add on stitch regulator) and it purred like a kitten. Only reason I sold it, was because I wanted to quilt bigger quilts. Found a used Gammill and sold the HQ to a friend who runs the heck out of it. I can find the link to the Cruise Control if you want it. Ask if you can try it out.
