My machine is a Grace Q’nique 15 R which we imported direct from the USA, even with the duties, taxes and transformer it was still cheaper than that the European supplier. The machine is 115volts so is run through a good quality transformer and works fine. I bought it with the extra rear handles which haven’t been used yet but will be in the near future. We didn’t import a table but my husband designed and hand built one. It is a sturdy 3m long alloy table which took a couple of tweaks to get it just right.
As of the second half of 2019 I’m still in the learning stage but have produced some interesting pieces.
The ‘R’ of the Q’niquie 15 R is important in that it stands for ‘regulator’. If you haven’t come across this and were thinking of getting a mid / long arm machine then I would highly recommend this facility. It works via two wheels which run along the side to side and back to back rails and they operate the movement of needle so with the slightest of movements the needle starts to operate, not going up and down at a constant speed but speeds up and slows down with the movement and speed of the machine which gives fantastic control.
If you would like details of importing and the table and construction then please contact me.
