EZ Glide Wheels, made by Pleasure Tool Company, react to OIL and leave black, permanent marks on the brushed aluminum rails of Gammill machines. These marks cannot be removed and that smooth movement actually adds more fishtail wiggle and machine movement than the original wheels. Four of the eight wheels are flat and do not lock into the track. The machine operator has to be careful not to make fast movements or the machine will derail and jump the track, which could damage the machine. Depending on the operator's strength, it may be impossible to lift the machine back onto the track by themselves.
Several quilters have either gone back to or replaced EZ Glide Wheels with EdgeRider Wheels, and are very glad they did because they now have control. This is especially true for computer quilting system owners that like to have patterns line up where they should, instead of always being off when the wheels Glide where they want to.
Here are two photos of the reaction of Easy Glide Wheels on a Gammill rail, that could not be removed.
