    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.

    YES!!!! No wonder I couldn't find it!! It is a 15-91 I lust looked up on where I'd written the info and realized I'd made a mistake. Thank you Charlee for pointing it out. There, I changed the subject to the right numbers. Now maybe others won't know that I goofed, unless they read our posts about it.

    You can't, that I know of. It's ok, we're gonna find it!! :lol:

    The harp space on a 15-91 is about 8.5 inches compared to 4 to 6 inches on most modern machines that don't cost a fortune...

    Go get it! My husband told me if I brought something in the house, something had to go out. I'm OK with that. He still has his clothes and a toothbrush. It is looking dicey for his clothes.

    Hey!!! That means that I might be able to use it for FM quilting better than the other machines. Also for the walking foot. I have a little one for my FW, but 2 for my Sears/Janome machine. It is short shank, so it would fit. The reason I got 2, is when I got the second one, it came in a package with some other feet that I didn't get with the first one that I wanted and this was the way to get them, also cheaper...

    I also saw a 1931 Singer 66 in a cabinet at the same place, but it didn't have anything with it, no book, no attachments, no extra bobbins, and I wasn't as impressed with it. It was for $32.50.

    Thanks, I think I'll sleep on it, and also see if I can clear out some room for it... And maybe it will come home with me...

    One reason you need it is that it is so heavy duty- That baby will sew through anything you can get under the presser foot. Like a hot knife through butter.

    I opted for the 15-91 when I got some advice on which one would help in making bags. And it is in a cabinet and sews beautifully. I also have a 301 (my "portable"). And a Juki 98 Q, which, I must confess, I love to death!

    You could, with a 15-91- sews new jeans for your husband....
