Please note: We no longer sell the ZQ-II and ZQ-III. The ZQ-II could do both cut and loop but also not a great machine for beginners. We were spending a lot of time teaching customers how to fix their machine and use it properly. It's also twice as heavy as the AK-I and II.
The AK-III replaced the ZQ-III and is a much easier machine to use.
