    Does any one here have a Lollipop for their machine? If so can you show a picture of what it looks like.
    Thank you in advance.

    I am not for sure what or how it is used. I have read of quilters using a lollipop on their machines. I googled it and all I could come up with was the candy. I want to know what it is and what it looks like.

    Not trying to steal a thread but....

    What is a PUCK, and a DEAD BAR? I know the dead bar goes on the frame in front of the take up bar/roller but what is its purpose?

    I have 5 rollers or bars on my frame. The take up roller for the finished quilt and the roller below it to keep the quilt at the correct level. Then at th front of the frame there is the roller for the backing fabric, the roller for the top which is the belly bar, and I have a roller below for the batting. I don't use the roller for the batting because Molly, my poodle will roll in it and make holes. I have no idea what a PUCK is. These have some really different nicknames.

    Add-on Equipment

    Even though the PC Quilter can press your foot pedal of your machine, buying the speed control device called a Puck is a very worthwhile investment. It's so much easier to use, giving you finer detail and faster speed. It, also, gives you speed control at an easy-to-reach dial. The foot pedal control must be set up in the software eliminating on-the-fly changes.

    Using the puck also avoids having to set the PC Quilter to deal with touchy foot pedals that are too sensitive, to stiff, too big or too small. Spring for the extra $50 to $90 right up front and save the time and hassle of upgrading to the puck a few weeks later. This is a third party product that your can get from The Machine Shop.

    That makes sense, it is kind of like the quilter's cruise control for the mega-quilter. They all have to have special names I guess.

    Well, I have a Bailey Quilting Machine on a Frame. I bought a
    Lollipop from the dealer. It is a metal plate that you put on the sewing machine and then you can do quilting with ruler work, etc. It's used so you have more space when long arm quilting.
