I would love to find the insert piece that fills in the hole after you lower the machine into your cabinet.  Matching the table would be too much to hope for, so I would be thrilled with anything!  I fear it might be Unobtainium.  [frown]   DSC_0683 (700 x 465).jpg

Christy,

What size sewing machine is the table for? I may have an insert. I know I have a table that's in terrible shape and needs to go away but I've not done anything with it. Mine even lloks similar to yours.

Really??? Oh that would be so wonderful!  The table is for a Singer 401 or any of the like sizes.  The opening is 16 5/8" by 7 1/8" .

Chris,  I checked back today only to realize I posted this in a "free" section.  I didn't mean to ask for it free.  I would be happy to pay you for the insert if you have it.

Christy,

The insert (assuming you mean the flap to hold the machine up) is either 15 or 16 inches by 10 inches. I am so sorry this didn't work out for you.

Well, it didn't work out for 2 reasons then.  [wink]  I don't mean the flap that holds the machine up.  That flap is actually there in my picture and in good shape.  The part I mean is the piece that fills the space to make the table whole once the machine has been lowered.  

Here is a picture to explain better.  What I need is the part with the round finger hole for a full sized machine.   empty-vintage-singer-sewing-machine-cabinet-desk-table-fits-99-k-185k-midcentury-71fa3d14d92616fe183f2a9e0fe4b036 (700 x 411).jpg

Christy,

I do not believe I have anything like that cabinet or piece in my collection/herd. 

Beautiful cabinet by the way.

I think I might. 
This is the cabinet,  and I modified it and removed the lift out part - what are the exact measurements you need?   though the hard part may be finding the darn thing!   I know it was in the sewing room for as long as I had the cabinet up there,  but not sure if it got moved out with the cabinet,  or is somewhere else.

Looks like mine is a newer style Singer cabinet, and the insert is larger than the other style.   This cabinet was made for a free arm machine so it's got lots of room around the machine.   The machine clipped to a board that is on hinges to raise and lower the machine,  instead of mounting with hinges to the cabinet.

I do have a cabinet like the blond one (mine is dark) that has Dh's Mom's T&S machine in it.  Dh is sort of attached to that one so I'm stuck with it.

Thank you for looking!  I never realized there were different sizes! Mine is not exactly like the desk pictured.  I was only using that photo for explanation of the part of am missing.  The table I have is the #430 classroom model with the laminate top.   I love how it extends to give me so much table space!DSC_1101 (700 x 465).jpg

I have one like Christy's in blonde and my husband painted the legs black. The fill in piece hangs by the side or goes in the hole. They were for Home etc classes. You could put a tablecloth on and teach girls how to set a table.
