|I am considering buying an HQ sixteen with SR, but am confused about the different types of frames. What is the difference between a Studio Frame and a Pro frame? Do you need to purchase a separate table when purchasing the HQ 16 with SR and Proframe? Does the Studio Frame come apart for ease of setting up? Thanks for your help.|

We actually have three different tables available to purchase with our machines.
The first is the Adjustable Table. This is made for people that want a more portable table. It is easier to take down and move. The sections for the table that come with it are two 33", one 30", and two 18" pieces. The table can be adjusted in any of these combinations, with 5.5' being the shortest and 10.5' being the longest. The Pro-frame clamps onto the table. If you are going to use it extended out to 10.5', you will need to get a center leg brace (a separate purchase) to place under the table to support it.
The second is our Quiltable Table. This table is one that you would use if you had a more permanent home for it. It does, however, have wheels on it to be able to move it around. It can be made into a 6' or 10.5'. The Pro-frame bolts into the table. It also has a bar under the table to store a bolt of batting on.
The third option is our Studio Frame Table. This is our top of the line table. It can be adjusted to 4', 8', or 12'. It is long enough to do a California King on. It has a different frame than the other two tables and has poles with a larger diameter. It has a batting bar under the table. It is a very nice and sturdy table. This is also a more permanent table--you would not want to be moving it around. There are no wheels on this table.
Unless you are going to have to be moving the table around a lot, I would recommend the Quiltable or the Studio Table.
I hope this helps.
