hello!

I just married by Janome 712t to my salvage Singer treadle table. I am still in the practice stage but I need to know: how to keep my table from moving around on my tile floor? The cabinet has the original casters/wheel/rollers and they are very mobile.

suggestion? thanks for you help.

Buy small plastic furniture leg cups at the hardware store. My regular treadle has only two wheels left, so I use the furniture cups to even it out...and so the cast-iron leg ends won't vibrate themselves through the finish of my hardwood floors.
(Edit) Also, if you move the treadle to a carpeted room later, you can make two hardwood runners, each long enough to go from the front wheel to the back wheel and rout out small cups in the hardwood for the wheels. The furniture cups won't work as successfully on carpet; you need to raise the entire assembly just a little so the carpet pile won't interfere with the foot action. When treadles were designed, almost all carpets were very low pile...or painted canvas.

Ooooo, please post pics and tell us all about your 712T! I long for a multi-stitch treadle.

I also will be interested to hear how you like your 712T. I have been tempted to get one for one of my treadle bases. I believe--but I may be wrong--that this is the multi-stitch treadle machine that Lehman's in Ohio sells with its treadle base.
