No,the bench doesn't have storage, but it is very sturdy. There are 2 larger drawers below the top smaller one that holds the attachments. There was the regular attachment box plus the other one, and I am thinking that it held a button hole maker. If it wasn't that, it was another large attachment.
What is the length of space under the arm of the machine compared to the newer machines? Do you know?
And I would have to make room for it as it is a cabinet rather than a portable like the rest of my machines. The others all live in rolling totes. I can always offer to get rid of my 'yard sale' Brother machine that I got probably 7-8 years ago. that would make some room, and the rolling totes can live under that machine when it's open. Ha ha.
