Just as in the third episode of season seven of Game of Thrones, Lady Olenna has passed on. I paid a reasonable, but expensive, fee for a service call from the Gammill dealer who services the territory that I live in and after working on her for well over 2 hours, we came to the conclusion that she cannot be fixed without even more service hours back at his shop in Vicksburg, MS. Since I was gifted the Gammill PDQ Green Machine, I decided that throwing even more money on service for such an old model longarm machine was not wise.
So, Lady Olenna is no longer in the realm of the living. She will be sold for parts to try to recoup some of the money spent on the service call and then the entire experience will go in the annuals of time as an epic attempt to save a true classic in perpetuity.
If you would like a shot at fixing her, or would be interested in her for parts, please contact me quickly, as she is due to be dissembled in the next two weeks. Thanks.
Valar Morghulis. Rest in peace Lady Olenna, I will miss you.
Curious to know what was wrong with her? Also, the name of your machinist would be nice!
She had too many issues to be feasible to fix. Many parts were not made any longer and I have since moved on to a computerized system. The person who made the hopping foot for me was a friend.
Thanks for the reply! I still have my Green Machine. Hope to find a machinist friend too!
