[amayausers] Lost height adjusters

        Didn't I tell you not to lose any of the four round plastic height
adjusters?!?!?  :) (see below)
        Or did you not have all four to begin with.  Can't say I'm met any
customers with extra spares lying around.  Everybody simply gets four per
machine.  Have you tried retracing your steps?  Could they still be in the
vehicle?  You really don't need them if you place your machine on a table.
Make sure it's sturdy though.  24" off the ground will put your machine at
the same height as the cart.  Of course then that would be a $400 wasted
cart you had purchased.  I'm sure Melco will be able to set you straight -
for a small price I'm sure.
Good luck,

        Do not transport the Amaya on it's black plastic base.  The machine is 
heavy and would be likely to fall over. Your Suburban should be just fine.
Just underneath the white metal casting and just above the black plastic
base are four locations for your hands when lifting.  Two on the right side
for one person and two on the left side for another.  Two semi strong men
are all that's needed to lift and walk to the Suburban.  It might help you
locate if you remove the large plastic table top.  Just pull straight up
with a slight jerk and then remove forward.  You should see the small
rectangular indentations under the metal casting where your hands go.
        Do not lose the four round plastic height adjusters as they sometimes 
to the spongy feet of the Amaya and fall off as you walk.  They just sit in
their cup holder like positions atop the black plastic base.  If you find
the machine is still too tall for the vehicle you're using, you can remove
all the thread spools off the machine and push the metal thread tubes down
to a lower position.  Don't push so far that you push them out.  Just make
sure you leave a long length of thread behind to tie the spools back on when
you're ready to replace.  You don't want to re-thread the machine by hand.
        If you can, strap the machine down incase you have to swerve.  Watch out
for pot holes, train tracks and small animals.  Don't drive too fast and put
your hazard lights on.  You can't be too careful.
        Again, don't transport the machine on the plastic base with wheels.
Good Luck,

Hi all,
Thanks for all the help.  I wanted to give you an update...
My email has been down, so I haven't been able to reply.  But the
transporting of the amaya went smoothly.  I realized (before we even moved
it) that we're missing two levelling "feet" (and Melco doesn't seem to
have a reorder item number for it - ughh!).  Can any of you techs get
access to just 2 of these?  They are the four things that the machine sits
on where the machine meets the cart.

Also, the cheap foamy hats were Sanmar's trucker hats... and the logo
ended up only being script lettering... sewed out like a champ... no
thread breaks to speak of... I was testing the machine at intervals of 500
spm at a time from 800 then up... I kept going, one hat at a time, and
going up, and going up until she was sewing at 1200 spm!!!  There were no
more thread breaks than there were at 800 spm.  Wow, and I thought I'd
have to run the hats slower... but not these hats... they behaved well.
Just one sheet tearaway worked fine.

That's the update...  any help on 2 leveling feet is appreciated...
