Re: Binder Attachment

Nicole Schmidt-Nutt
 

Here is a youtube video on how to use the binder foot.
(the second one shows you how to miter the corners.)
 
It helped me when I was first using the binder foot.
 
Hope this helps,
Nicole

Hi Nicole,

I am getting ready to bind some placemats and wondered about using the binder attachment. I want mitred corners and am not sure how you achieve mitred corners with this attachment which looks great for going in a straight line or around a gentle curve.

Maggie, on turning on and off. I've had computers that have a job to do, that were in operation 24/7/365 for years, in the neighborhood of 10+. Only changed out due to the companies updating their background software. Never suffered failures. I can't tell you how many "failed drives" , usually the term when powering up or trying to, that I've came across. Except for not wanting to run up the electric bill, I prefer them on for longevity but still shut them down when not around.. That's just me. Click Free is my back up. Let em fry. Not a plug for Click Free, just that I know I won't lose anything and it's dirt simple. Keep on sewing..


Re: How to search for information/ bobbin thread question

120 /2 simply means 2 ends of 120 which equals 60.  The different thread composition ,i,e, natural fibre or synthetic determines which count is used.  Use your 120 exactly as you would use a 60.

Gail,  I wondered about that too!  Seems though they just just started in the upper left hand corner.  I would think things would be better if you found the exact center and worked out on each side from there.

Has anyone else have any comments?

Thanks,

Jim, I must correct my last post.  I am not sure the service guy said that I had blown the A Board.  He just said that it had blown and that it would need to be replaced.

Took my machine in on Friday and the service man called me this afternoon and he said I had blown the A Board.  I assume that is a computer board.  Is this a common problem with this machine?  It is covered by the warranty but I do not want to have to go through this again when it is not covered.  I am thinking about getting the 15000 and giving this machine to my daughter, but I do not want her to have to replace this A Board every couple of years.

 

Taking issue with semantics, Jim says:

I can accept that the A board (main computer board) *could* be "blown", but I take exception to his statement that you did it. Unless you poured a coke in the machine or tossed it in a bathtub full of water, you had nothing to do with the hardware failure. We've seen a few instances of this problem with new 15000s, not so much on 12000s. I would be inclined to chalk it up to either a defective component or a manufacturing error. I would also be inclined to believe it's the switching power supply rather than the A board. Most "old school" service technicians chalk up every electrical failure as a fault of the A board, which actually fails very rarely. In the case of the 12000, there are no accessible fuses to change, but I'd bet my socks that the real problem is a fuse in the power supply.

 

In any case, once the problem is fixed I wouldn't worry about it happening again, especially if it really is the A board.

Re: Binder Attachment

Lyn Jeglum <bmmlmj@...>
 

I borrowed the binder from a friend (who thinks it is great) to try it out on my 12K. There is a bit of a learning curve to get the binding to look good. I prefer to do my binding with the 1/4 inch walking foot because I think it is quicker and does a better job.

How to search for information/ bobbin thread question

ceilsews <no_reply@...>
 

I looked for a way to search for this information but haven't been able to find it.  The 15000 came with a spool of 100/2 thread.  Is this what I should use for embroidery or can I use 60?

Unless you pay extra for some sort of bundle, most PCs do not come with Office. Sometimes they include a "trial" copy with a crippled version of Word, but usually you have to shell out big bucks to get the full Office. However you will get Internet Explorer, Mail for email and WordPad for simple word processing. Skype is a free download, so all you'll really need to do is put your Janome software on.

Re: Windows 8 and MC `120000 software

Carl, I've distrusted any kind of Hibernate function ever since  the loss of a dongle broken by the power surge coming out of hibernation can cause. I immediately disable hibernate/sleep/ hybrid sleep if offered when setting up a new pc .  My PC is on or it is off. I had huge fights with my computer savvy sons as they would leave their computers on standby along with their games consoles etc, and refused to believe just how much power their pc still consumed. In the end I turned off everything electrical except for their pc's, my meter still registered quite a high flow rate. made them Wake up their pc's one at a time, and each monitored the power spike generated. After that they totally turned their pc off when not being used. My youngest son was surprised to discover that win 8 doesn't close down unless the fast boot is disabled, but sits in a state of hybrid hibernation. Like myself he prefers a cold reboot, less chance of nasty surprises, lets face it what do we do with the time saved but waste it.

Re: Binder Attachment

I have one that is Part No. 846-421-007 says it fits MC 6500, MC 6600, Horizon MC 7700QCP, MC 11000 and MC 11000 Special Edition.

 

I got it before the 12000, 8900, 9900 and 15000  Janome models came out. I had it for my MC 6500.

 

I don’t know if it will fit any of the models listed on the 2nd line of my email. If anyone is interested in it, I’m willing to sell it as I don’t use it. Send an email to vikkiy@... and we’ll discuss price.
