    Frame machine to table top?

    The button for my quilting machine is on the track that the machine is attached to, not the machine. I looked under the machine, and I see where the wires are going to the button. Can I cut the wires and put a food pedal on it so I can use it on a table?
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    I wouldn't. If you decide to sell the frame and machine you will have decreased the value considerably. Give it careful thought. Why do you want to put it on a table?

    It is basically an industrial machine on a frame. It's difficult to maneuver and I don't like it! The cats have claimed it as theirs, so I can't keep a quilt on it! I want to keep the machine, sell the frame.

    Send a picture to my email so I can look at what you are talking about. I'll give you my best advice if it can or can't be done.
    How big is your frame?

    Hmmm. That is an industrial machine. It looks like a Brother or a Consew. How is the motor hooked to the machine? Does it have a motor boss or is it bolted to the machine itself? How do you control the speed on the machine now?

    Hello,
    I have just joined the quilting board group.
    My husband built me a quilting frame, but so far I have not had any luck getting the frame that holds my sewing machine to work smooth enough for it to sew right. Any suggestions on how to do this?

    I emailed you some pictures, because I don't know what a motor boss is. It's pretty much just bolted to the machine. The speed is controlled by a knob that looks like (and might very well be) a light switch dimmer.
