    15 Clone Case/Base/Table Sovereign

    I found a beautiful Sovereign Precision Deluxe machine. I talked about it so much that my SO bought it for my birthday. It's a beautiful metallic blue with lots of chrome. It's in great shape and it has a 1.9 amp motor, belt not direct drive. She sings! Probably the nicest machine I have ever used. Very fast and very powerful.

    I need to find a case/base/table for it. I just don't want her to stand around naked. She does have feet so she's useable. I don't have a lot of money but I know you folks are always finding great bargains. Where should I look? And is it pretty safe to assume all 15's will fit? A table would be ideal but I know those are expensive to ship. I live in Nevada, not exactly a happy hunting ground for antiques like the east coast and midwest.

    All ideas are appreciated! Thanks!Name:  DSCF0388.JPG

    Patty,

    You can buy new plastic cases here: { http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/sew...ine-cases.aspx }
    I know they are expensive, but in lieu of the wooden ones it's better than a naked machine.
    If we were within driving distance I could help with a cabinet for it.

    You should regularly check out thrift stores or Craigslist local to you for sewing machines. I have found several machines in cabinets for about $20. Your machine will fit in a Singer cabinet so make sure the cabinet is a Singer cabinet. And it appears your machine needs mounting hinge pins and set screws.

    And in an absolute pinch, go to Wally World and get a generic plastic case.

    If you go to Wally world just buy a cat litter tub. It's the same thing as their generic generic case.
    The ones I listed in the link above have hinge pins and are actually sewing machine cases. Not just tubs with a lid.

    Great ideas! I will do that and get something to protect it temporarily. That will buy me enough time to look.

    I cleaned her up yesterday evening and she looks even better now!
