Over time, I've acquired a few Singer cabinets with missing or broken dress guards.
Does anyone have an "easy" replacement idea for the missing ones? Something flexible, and able to be felted to absorb oil drips.
As to the broken ones, it seems to happen at the rear mount of the guard, where the wood or hardboard breaks out around the nail into the cabinet. Ideas to repair these?

There's a quarter inch thick wood product sheet available. Sold in 4x8 sheets.
I think that with the right form, you could probably make your own.
It wouldn't be crazy difficult.

Use 1/8" plywood or paneling. I think that's what the originals were made of. Don't want oil on my skirts for sure!
