Re: Can't get the needle bar to move

Sounds amazing for quilters!

A Tin Lizzie 18 is a long arm quilter with an 18” throat. The 15000 has 11” to the right of the needle but the throat on a long arm is to the back of the machine. A long arm moves over a quilt on a frame. The quilt moves under the needle on the 15000. We have a stool nearby, but use it for resting and watching the robot quilt…not for free or ruler quilting.

I have never seen a Tin Lizzie but would a chair that has an adjustable seat that can be raised help? I'm 5'3 and that helps me with my regular sewing machines.

My machine is  Tin Lizzie 18, too.  It has served me well with light use (life gets in the way) and even surviving a move.  My one complaint is that I can't see where I'm going when I stitch backwards.  I'm short, only about 5' and think maybe if Lizzie were lower, I'd see better.  Any suggestions would be welcome.
