Default BL Jazz on frame?

Is anyone using a Baby Lock Jazz or Jazz II on a frame and how is it working out for you? I was told by a Dealer not to put it on a frame. The bouncing? is not good for the machine. I have a HQ tabletop frame and have used a Pfaff Expression 2.0 on the frame with no bouncing or problems that I can remember. I want to set the frame up again and trying to decide what machine to put on it. I would love a 16" machine but a little out of my price range. LOL

I don't have either machine, but I agree with you that there should be no bouncing of the machine if you have a good quality frame and a carriage that fits well. Isn't the throat on the Jazz a lot bigger than on the Pfaff? That would be the deciding factor to me. But if you're worried about it, perhaps you could check with Babylock?

16 inch quilting machine: check BaileySewingCenter.com. They are on the east coast but their machines are very much more in line with those of us with small incomes.

I have the Jazz but haven't even thought to use it in a frame. What I've considered doing is turning the machine 90 degrees. This way the quilt would be moving side to side while being quilted instead of front to back. Does this make sense and will it work??? TIA

I don't have a Jazz II, but just wanted to say what a great machine choice it looks like. Really good features.
