How to Use This Blog

Since we have lots and lots of videos here, you will need to know the best way of finding what you are looking for. Each post has the video(s) of the topic it is about. Sometimes there will be more than one video that is a continuation of the previous one. These videos will be posted together within the same post. To find what you are looking for, either use the search box or the list of categories posted in the right column.

The IQ system is constantly evolving, so please keep in mind that some of the older videos may show features that have been replaced by newer ones, or buttons that have changed position or names. However, the videos have not been removed because the methods demonstrated are still valid.

Adjusting the IQ motor brackets

Another great video by Patty Butcher, demonstrating how to adjust the iQ motors. Pay attention to how much to loosen and then tighten - as Patty says, only teeny tiny turns. Never, ever loosen them a lot - it will be so much harder to get the correct adjustment.
NOTE: Patty is working on an APQS machine. On my Gammill I couldn't use the carpenter's square as Patty does to check that her motor is straight - I had to hold a straight edge and compare it to a straight edge on my track. I've shown that in another post.
