This machine is tried, tested and true. It's price reflects the quality of the machines parts.
All the parts of the gun are replaceable which means this gun should last you forever!

Please Note - All Things EFFY does NOT recommend adjusting the pile height of your gun. Why? because damaging the machine is awful easy if you don't know what you are doing.
It also requires PATIENCE and being comfortable tinkering with machines.
The biggest reason I don't recommend it is that the factory setting of 14mm is more than adequate for a rug and if you want to adjust the depths, rug carvers are the best way to accomplish this.
However, if you are keen I've put together my own guides to help you change the pile height. Hopefully without incurring any damage to the machine.
Please be very careful when adjusting anything near the white cog wheel, bending this wheel even a tiny bit can greatly affect the machine.
