I've had my Gammill Classic longarm machine for 12 years. It started out as a non-stitch regulated machine. I upgraded to stitch regulated in 2009. My table is a 14 foot long table with pivitol access, but I wasn't able to sit down and quilt comfortable.
Since my back has been giving me problems when I stand for long periods of time, I had to either upgrade, trade in, or sell. I decided to upgrade. My husband Paul and daughter Hannah and I worked yesterday evening getting the upgrade done. It was fairly easy thanks to my mechanical-minded hubby and daughter. Left to my own devices I would have messed it up. I'll be loading a quilt on it in a few days to try it out.
