    Has anyone purchased a quilting frame from Ken Lund from ebay? I have some concerns about this frame. 1st being this frame needs a table to position it, and also the attachments of the components. Any feedback would be welcome.

    I did purchase a Ken Lund frame in May. I was able to baste and somewhat happy with a small pentograph that I worked on. I found issues with precision though. The frame I bought had big rubber wheels (maybe for skateboards??) and had too much "give". I contacted Ken on several emails and he had me make some changes which helped some. But I would have much preferred metal sliding door wheels that roll on angle irons to give me the precision I was use to when I rent a long arm at the quilt shop. I also really hoped for handles on top of the frame (but this frame is made just for sitting). So with some upgrades . . . it will work for the price. If you are looking for a frame in a cheap price range (and know someone who works with power tools) you might look into Richards Home Quilting Frame. My friend's husband made her one and the plans are detailed and pics for EVERY step of the way. I practiced on her frame and really liked it. Her husband said he spent about $350 in supplies (used some better quality wood that increased the price a bit).
