    I had some requests to show info about the homemade frame I bought at an auction a few years ago. I don't know who made the frame but my hubby says it wouldn't be difficult to make. I'm quilting a king sized quilt on it right now and have had to fold in the borders to make it fit..... it holds a queen or full sized quilt really well and I've quilted both those sizes with the quilt nice and flat. My rails are about 115" long measured from gear to gear. I'm going to add a picture of the base and a drawing I made with measurements. If you have any questions or need more pictures, just let me know. I'll try to answer anything about it.

    I believe Grace sells just the gears. They are plastic, but work well. That would be easier than trying to make them....

    Whichever you choose to do.... it sure makes a nice frame and I don't think it would cost much for the lumber.

    THANK YOU! I built a frame some years ago, but could never figure out the gear part. I will show this to DH and see if we can make it work with what we already have :D
