    Does the 99 have to be in a case or cabinet and can they work on table-top? I rarely see on not in case or cabinet and don't know if it has that piece that knocks if just sitting lone on a table. I have my eye on one but def don't like the case it is in. Help anyone?

    I just bought one a little while ago. The manual says it has to be in a case, but someone else might have a different answer. I'll be watching this thread.

    it needs some sort of base- either the case- or a cabinet- or one of those sewing tables it could be dropped down in- some sort of base.

    There is a part under there that turns when running, and so the machine can't sit flat on a table. Because if it is, that part won't turn. I have the 99 and my Cinderella machine is the same way.So you would either need to leave it in the case, or build you something with the machine shape cut out so that part can move freely. Hope this helps.

    If you don't like the case it is in, can you change the case, or cover it with wallpaper or contact paper? It is a good little machine, easy to use and clean and oil.

    Thanks all! I have a fondness for these but really think I'll pass bc no room for another cabinet and the cases kind of bug me. I think I'm over it. Lol
