There are at least two different styles of extension boards. First is original 99 hand crank machine. It has chipped corner, but says leave me alone. The boards store in the bentwood tops, latch similar to machine hold down.

The second is one made by taking veneer and one layer from 3/4" oak veneer plywood. The thinkness needs to be about 5/8". The mount lug is mostly straight, slides in from end. The end receiver on base has dented down lead-in. Original board have bead protusion that fits in groove around bases. Instead brass welding rod formed into staples. The staples fit in groove, preventing twist of board.
The later style boards have advantage of holding board upright. Something desired if machine out, need more table space quickly.

The third is one made similar to first. It was made from parts of treadle leaf given when purchasing machine. It is possible to make two leaves from one.

I make metal harware from 0.1" scrap steel.

They look easy to make, not so easy.

Hello group,  I always saw the extension boards on Singers listed on eBay.UK and never knew they were also commonly available in USA as well until this thread.  I also was unaware that they were stored inside bentwood tops until the post in this thread.  Those extension boards are very cool and a really nice idea.  We are currently working on a 12x18 inch extension table for our Singer 29k72 clone and it's pedestal/table.  This table is way cool and I'll post pictures soon enough after it is finally completed.    Best regards, Mike

I've not seen an extension board in person. Thanks, Kit for the extension board possibilities. Thank you Bruce, for the installed photos. I can be 2d challenged, sometimes. I've got two 128s in bentwood cases, a 1923 LaVen, and a Crinkle. They definitely need extensions!

Hello group,  OK....maybe this is a picture of an extension board of sorts that we were working on today 😉  It is a horrible picture and the board is being held up by my hand as we are still working on it so it's not at the correct level in the picture around the patcher arm.  Basically, it is a 12x18 inch board for our Singer 29k72 patcher clone we have here.  The original was also 12x18.  We used 1.5mm stainless on top of 1/2 inch marine plywood and also have stainless on the outer edges.  The inside edge around the arm has brown tinted epoxy to hide the fact it is marine plywood.  We will make the rest of the hardware tomorrow and also a very custom mount on the side of the pedestal to make it a belt guard of sorts when it is not being used.

  That is an 18 inch stainless ruler I bought for under 3 dollars.  I bet nobody can guess what the tacks are that are used every inch on the ruler to permanently attach it to the board 😉  The ruler is almost the same thickness as the stainless top so it worked out well and also the tacks we thought of worked out well also.

Best regards, 
Mike

The face of those "tacks" look like tinners rivets or Chicago screws

Hi Steve,

  Close but not quite 😉  Since we do have a riveter for our jeans and a ton of the fly buttons I used the barbed portion to attach the ruler.  Basically a smaller hole with a nail followed by removing the nail and hammering the barbed section of the fly buttons.  

Best regards,
Mike
