How do I attach the extension table to my phoenix frame?

Posted by on February 27, 2012

  Your Extension table for the Phoenix Frame comes with the table and two brackets to hold the table to the machine. These instruction will help you get the table ready and the brackets in place so that you can attach the table and start using your rulers.

1. Removing the four leg parts from the Extension Tables.

a. You may want to use some needle nose pliers or a

socket to hold the nut on the bottom side with the black leg part, and a phillips screwdriver.

b. Remove the leg parts

c. Save the screws from the legs as you will be using these parts to secure the table to the brackets.

 2. Placing the brackets on the carriage next to the machine.

a. Loosen the front screws holding the carriage to the machine.

b. Looking at the brackets you will see four tabs

1. Two tabs have nuts attached to the bottom this is the top of bracket attach to bottom of table

2. Two tabs are blank these slid under the side of the machine.

c. Angle the bracket towards the back of the machine and slide between the machine and the carriage.

d. With the tab below the side of the machine slide the bracket forward so that you can get the front tab below the machine.

e. Slide the bracket back so that both bottom tabs are below the machine.

 3. Setting the table on and securing to the brackets.

a. Place the table on top of the brackets and line up the screw holes with the top tabs.

b. Using the screws you removed from the table in step

1. Secure the table to the brackets at the four (4) points.

c. Once the screws are secure slide the table and brackets back so that the table is against the machine.

d. Tighten the front screws on the carriage which secure the machine to the carriage.

You are now ready to use the extension table with your rulers while you are quilting.

To remove you will want to reverse the steps and remove the table first then the brackets.

Note: If you remove the machine first the table will fall as it is not attached to the machine.

    I would like to purchase an extension table to fit my Tin Lizzie 18 (7yrs old) and grace wooden frame. I live in Newfoundland Canada, and as far as I know there are no dealers on the island. Thanks

      Closest Dealer is in NY Above n Beyond 845-623-4313

      Sorry for the delayed response. Some comments were not appearing.

    I have the wooden grace frame and have never been able to get my extension table to fit correctly. Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong?

    • kelleyn says:

      Thanks for the question, Jean and apologies for the delayed response. Did you recently purchase your extension table? All the newest EXT tables are universal so fit easier on the quilting system. If not, let us know when you purchased and we may be able to help.

    I recently took apart my Lizzie 18 ESP to lengthen the poles to max 10 feet. Now that things are back together again my vertical encoder does not seem to be working at all. The machine will not stitch vertically. I can see that the encoder is not riding on the pole at all. I have never had to adjust one and I am not sure how to go about it. Can you give me some guidance. I also have the Quilt Magician installed on my machine.
    Thanks, Barbara

      This sounds like an encoder issue from expanding your frame. You may have just switched the encoder around when you replaced the quilter on the frame. That is a simple fix. Please call us at 888-QUILT-18 so we may walk through the solution. Thanks and sorry for the delayed response! For some reason your comment did not make its way to us earlier.

    Is the extension table used on the wooden frame the same one used on the Phoenix frame? I just upgraded to the Phoenix frame and found that my ruler table does not work. Can I modify it? Are there new parts that I need. I don’t understand what brackets you are referring to. I don’t see anything that has 4 tabs. Pictures please! LOL

      Deb, The Extension tablefor the wooden and the Phoenix frame in the past were different brackets. Please call us at 888-Quilt 18 and we can walk through together to get you the correct brackets.

    I now have the extension table on my machine and it was pretty easy to do.
