3D Printer to the Rescue

Bless the individual who came up with a slant shank prototype for vintage Singer machines using their 3D printer. The darn thing actually fits my 301! I’m able to use the same trusty snap on feet I use with my Singer Featherweight. Oh happy day! If case you’re interested, I found them on eBay.

Miss Carmella also received two more needed accessories this week: a full-color machine manual and an acrylic extension table. Instead of Sew Steady, I had Tailor Made Tables LLC make the table this time. Well made product with a nice fit around the machine bed. Like the carry handle and extra support leg along the front edge of the table. The bottom of each adjustable leg is smooth, so the table slides very easily into place around the machine. Too smooth for my existing sewing surface – I’ll need to trade Miss Carmella’s current quilted sewing mat for a nonslip one. Everything slides around too easily with the quilted sewing mat.
