The five thumbnails below are an attempt to show Gammill's new "Pivot Access" feature for getting the quilt layers separated and exposed to straighten batting or remove varicose thread.

The first photo below is before the oval handle is pulled to start the pivot access process. All photos are from the needle side of the table.

Click on the thumbnail to see the full photo.The handle is on the right end.

If you are the upgrading to a machine with the pivot access feature, treat the belly bar and the bar below it as "one" when loading your quilt. In other words, nothing goes between these two bars.
