Unless your new machine uses the exact same hoops as your previous machine you will not be able to use them or convert them for use. You will need to order a new hoop compatible with your new machine/model.
Extensive research has shown that the position of the magnets on our magnetic hoops does not cause any damage to computerized embroidery machines. The metal frame absorbs the electromagnetic pull which, while strong enough for hooping, is not strong enough to pass through this field. Most commercial machines do not even have magnetic fields in the lower arm assembly.
The use of magnets in this application has been thoroughly tested with no adverse effects. Additionally of all the magnetic hoops we've sold, there has not been a single report of any problem which was caused by magnets properly placed on the hoops.
However, magnets CAN damage magnetic computer data; therefore, use caution. Do not put them in direct contact with diskettes or memory sticks. Some design cards are susceptible as well. To be on the safe side, watch where you put your magnets!
We do not take responsibility for damaged diskettes, memory sticks, design cards or other media that is damaged due to user error.
