The longarm machine I have (APQS Ultimate I, 20+ yrs old) uses a stylus to trace a pantograph.
I have a hard time keeping my view consistent so I wanted a laser light for more accuracy.
I had to find a laser light with an on/off switch, used a bit of electrical tape to narrow the size of the light on the paper and then taped it onto the stylus! Now as for the skewer -it is helping to hold the laser light mounting bolt in place-the apparatus that held it in place inside the housing of the machine came apart many years ago. This way is not ideal mechanically but it works! I can happily quilt for an hour now and it is a dream even if it doesn't look shiny bright! lol
Yes, it works just fine-so nice to make a mile and see the progress when you don't have to keep stopping to fix your equipment!
In fact, one down.......
and one to go!
On the sewing front, I finished the other 'row' of frogs and am now working on the individual ones.
I leave some of the tear away stabilizer on the wrong side-those frog toes just won't let go!
