    Tilting a sewing machine

    I just did this and boy, what a difference! Hubster cut me a piece of trim to go under the back of my machine and another piece a little thicker to place the back of my extension table and it's great! I would highly recommend it.

    I had forgotten about the 'tilt'. I used it with my old sewing cabinet but discontinued when my DH built my new cabinet. It makes it much easier to see.

    A Board member's husband makes a wooden tilt. I bought two of them, use with both my machines. Not only can you see better, I find it's less back strain. I think her name is Debbie Umpress

    I have a paperback book under the front of mine!
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    do you tilt the machine back or foward? Does it "hurt" the machine to run if it is not level?
