I got this industrial machine that I loved using - but, was horrible for relations with the other people in my condo building.

My old SMAD was getting worked up I started to think of a new machine to buy that would be quiet and, would not vibrate and might consolidate a few machines ... prob you are familiar with that drill.

Then I had this wild idea ...



And look! The Pfaff fit in the well from the industrial machine - Ive always wanted that machine in a well. I even got crazy and cleaned the thing all up.

But, I was still having a little vibrating. I remembered my little Kenmore - zz machine. It runs so silent. And, PRESTO!

Last night, I ordered a new belt for the Kenmore - I im excited for the belt to come so I can try out the machine.

And, Im really happy to have a place to sew with three of my machines! Now I can put the head/machines on shelves and change them out as desired!

What a GREAT idea! Could you post more pictures of the underneath part that is holding the machines.

There is a company that makes industrial type sewing tables and I've been considering one of those, but your idea is even better!

Hey Angie Rose -



Here is a pic of the recessed well, taken from below.

It is attached to the table by screws that go through the table top and a bar that connects on either side at both ends. It is not going anywhere.

I think it was attached to catch oil drips from the old singer head? Im not sure what search words would help you find a product like that - but Ill take a guess -- oil drip pan for industrial sewing machine?

HA - your smart, Im sure you can find one. Im super excited about discovering this - because it will allow me to go nuts buying machines that are table top - but have them at the right height.

let me know what you find.

Oh the well is a little smaller than 7 by 19. I think I remember you saying you have the same industrial I bought, though. So same size.

Oh -- if you do any business with sew-perfect you will enjoy it.

The man who owns that business is the closest Janome/brother/elna dealer. He is super wonderful to work with.

I always judge Janome - but then I keep reminding myself that this grand quilter is a janome wolf in disguise. I continues to be my fave machine. Ive tried many others. But - it is the best one for me that I have found.

And, Tony is super nice - I dont drive and he is about a 30 min drive from me. But, he would be a great dealer to work with. I have no question. I buy lots of notions from them when I visit their store.

Thanks for the picture of the underside! Now I just have to find a old industrial table. I already looked on our Craigs list. Nothing today.
Also, nice to know Tony has a good business reputation. I sort of knew that already as my friend in Indiana bought one of his tables. She loves it!

As the well in your table is just a metal tray, I would make a suggestion. Next time you are at a hardware, have a look around for some foam mesh matting (or even anti-slip carpet underlay) .... you can buy thin stuff to put in your drawers to stop plates and glasses moving around. A layer of that under the machine, may very well absorb a little of the vibration, cutting back the noise level.

I think there's also a rubber vibration-dampening material intended to go under table legs as well. I don't know how thick it is, it may make the table too tall?

I've been thinking about a Sew Perfect table for my Juki 2010, but not sure about the leg room in the back due to the brace?

If the motor you were using on the industrial was a "clutch" motor, they are noisy. You might want to swap it out for a servo motor as they are supposed to be much quieter. Great idea though for using the 1 table for all your machines. I have thought of that myself with the table I bought from Tony's in Biddeford.
