I have a Pfaff Grand Quilter with a Next Generation Frame that I use for my machine quilting. It comes with a little plastic tool that is used to roll the tubing that holds the fabric and batting in place.
Well, I lost mine. I was patient and figured it would show up, but it hasn’t. I have cleaned the room, and looked everywhere. I am guessing I set it down and dog thought it was a toy and hid it because I can’t find it anywhere. I was lamenting to my hubby and groaning over the imagined cost to replace it. He went out to the garage and came in a short time later with a rolling tool that is used to replace screens in windows. I tried it and it was helpful but just not quite good enough…I explained that the rolling part needed to be about two washer widths wide.
Hubby went down to the shop and came back with this. It isn’t pretty…but boy does it ever work!
He welded one small bolt onto a large bolt then added the washers and nuts. Honestly, I like it better than the original tool. Here it is in action.
It works like a dream. Now I don’t care if I ever find the other one. I highly doubt the dog will mistake this for a toy.
This is just one of the MANY things my hubby does for me that I really appreciate. I am so blessed to have a mechanical, inventive guy around.
