Gammill Wheel Problem

Boy, it seems like I have a lot to talk about today.........

Yesterday, I was quilting along on the Christmas Porch quilt, using the Jingle Bell dance pantograph and notice that when I reached a certain spot, the machine hesitated, as though it was stuck there. I checked the rails and the wheels, re-dusted them and continued on. It continued, so when I finished a row, I got the machine to that spot and upon further investigation, I found this:

It appears to be a little dimple/hole in the wheel. I figured out that if I go really fast, I was OK in those spots, but I have a call in to Accomplish Quilting and hope to get some help today.

Here's a peek at the quilt I was trying to finish before dark.........didn't happen. The quilting is finished, but was too dark to take it outside for pictures last night.

Now you have an excuse to get the Edgerider wheels :) I've heard good things but I'm not about to replace my perfectly fine wheels yet.
