    For the missing rubber foot you might try the plastic lid from a spray starch can. It fits mine perfectly.

    I have used a computer table in the past. I found a way to lock the keyboard shelf so it would hold my machine. I used a different screw on mine and it worked great. I had my sewing room redone and I now have a build in shelf that hold my machines. But I still have my computer table for future use.

    Went to Wal M and found rubber feet, much thicker than what was on table and replaced them, they take 1" size. Now to find time to sew. Company coming today and I have to pay bills online first.

    I bought not just one computer table but two. Mine is5'x2' with the tray on the right side of table,I have enough room to the right of the tray to hold sand held trash bag. I bought my first one on sale for $129.00(I think?) the second was on clearance /discontinued for $66.00(I know for sure,still have receipt) I forgot to say, they each have 2 shelves. The saying;Look outside of the box! Certainly applies to our "Quilting Space" Tinker

    Seems like you could turn the table around, so the drop-down is at the back (away from you), and the solid part up close where you'd put your machine. Same amount of sewing space, but if material drapes over the other part, it wouldn't put the weight pressure on there that the machine would!
