The new Nolting long arm arrived today via UPS.  Steven helped me switch the arms and rails out on  the frame.  He had to go off the the Fire House for a meeting, else I would have had him help me figure out the encoders for the stitch regulator. 

It is a beautiful thing. 
I found this
in the box.  I think I get the hint. 

However,  I plan to  drill a hole in the carriage at each end and slip a bolt through and fasten with a nut.  It will be less bulky. 
Actually, I think I will ask Steven to drill a hole.  He has the good tools,  remember? 


  1. Looking forward to reading about your adventures with the nolting!

  2. WOO-HOO!!!! You are really cookin' now!! Twenty inches, wow. At Paducah, I bought some leader grips that grip on the side edges of backing and then the clamps hold the leader grip. I really like the longer taut edge. I need major practice as I still stink.
