All I have to say is Amazing. I was really apprehensive about purchasing a 3rd set of wheels for my Gammill C+ but thought what the heck. You change tires on a car because of wear and tear. I am SO impressed with the difference it made on my machine. Don't get me wrong. My machine purrs like a kitten and stitches wonderfully. When we put the new wheels on you could have picked my jaw up off the floor. It is like sliding on smooth ice. Absolutely no drag. I can actually quilt now and barely touch my machine. Impressed, you bet. Now to save my pennies for the intelliquilter. Thank you for the wonderful product and keep up the great work. You make my job easier…
Imitation SHOULD BE the sincerest form of flattery!
It happened again. A small company (us) spends several years developing and fine-tuning a product then a large company (Gammill Quilting Machine Co.) re-engineers our design as if was their own. They not only end up selling it for a higher price but also manage to use it in a way that affects the performance of your quilting machine. To make things worse, their dealers and corporate staff have also been using our product name "EdgeRider Wheels" when referring to "their" wheels. In effect, they are trying to fool their customers into believing they are buying genuine EdgeRider Wheels instead of an imitation.
So how good are these wheels marketed by Gammill Quilting Machine Co.?
Independent performance comparisons of genuine EdgeRider Wheels and wheels provided by Gammill Quilting Machine Co. show that Gammill wheels are not as free flowing as genuine EdgeRider Wheels. The wheels provided by Gammill Quilting Machine Company make intricate and precise stitching more difficult and the Gammill wheels do not slide smoothly on a diagonal, slipping along one axis after coming to a stop on the other axis. A simple test with a glass of water shows how much less vibration your machine has with genuine EdgeRider Wheels. One customer told us that when using Gammill wheels, she felt like she was "man-handling" her machine just to get it to perform according to the quilting design.
So how did this happen?
We were led to believe that Gammill Quilting Machine Company wanted to work with us. In 2008, Gammill approached us to provide them with our wheels for their quilting machines. This seemed like a great idea at the time. Finally, Gammill Quilting Machine Company has realized how our superior product can improve their quilting machine performance and at the same time make their customers happy. This would help them sell more machines!
When Gammill Quilting Machine Co. contacted us for a quote, they only wanted to use two wheels per axis, four total, per machine. We explained that this would not work well and all eight wheels were needed for the smooth ride our customers enjoy today. We even offered to develop a design specifically for their needs. Their representatives responded that their engineers had already determined that four wheels (two per axis) were adequate.
We were not willing to compromise our quality for anybody, not even a big company like Gammill Quilting Machine Co.. They did end up asking for a quote for sets of eight wheels and ordered a sample set from us. Much to our surprise, for some reason our wheel did NOT work for them despite the fact over a thousand quilters were, at the time, using genuine EdgeRider Wheels on the Gammill machines as a performance enhancing after-market addition.
The Bottom Line
Work with a company you can trust. We are constantly working to provide the best product for your quilting machine. Make sure you are buying genuine EdgeRider Wheels, not an inferior imitation, by contacting one of our dealers. If they are not on our list they are not selling EdgeRider Wheels.
Don't let your machine ride on anything but genuine EdgeRider Wheels.
We make wheels for quilting machines. We are the only company that
engineered its wheels specifically for the quilting industry. Most long-arm and mid-arm quilting machine manufacturers buy their wheels from other industries. Would you let your car ride on bicycle
tires? Don't let your quilting machine ride on pulleys.
We offer long and mid-arm quilting machine owners an alternative to the standard wheels that come with their machines. Our wheels were designed specifically for each make; Gammill, APQS and the HQ Sixteen quilting machine. We offer wheels for the following quilting machines:
