    I have one too. I paid $105 at auction but would have gone much higher to get it. I work for a living and if I decide I want something I get it. I still have not set up my Husqvarna Rose to try her out and I have had her since aug 17, 2012. Just no time to play on her. will be trying her out this Thanksgiving weekend, because I will be done with work for a few days.

    There is one for the 301 that looks just like the FW one.
    If you wouldn't write it and sign it, don't say it.

    The FW table I saw yesterday didn't have the "jig" to the side on the left. Definitely take the FW with you to check. There were tables like this for the FW, 99, 128, 301, 401 and possibly others.

    that's what mine looks like except mine is in a little rougher shape. But, I really lucked out at the Good Will store and paid $9. and change. I was doing the happy dance all the way home.

    I've only run across a few and they ask a lot of money for them - more than yours would be. Most are in bad shape, too. I would pay that for one - since my hubby is not a handyman.

    That's a FW table! Gosh I would love to have one. If you don't buy this one, let me know so I can!

    My mistake. I was too excited for having seen my first one yesterday that I didn't notice the jig. It does look like the FW one. I went back to the store today, after calling and asking for them to put it on hold. When I got there, there were 2 of them waiting for me. I ended up buying the second one, instead of the first, because it was almost half the price, and the more expensive one wasn't twice as good.

    I believe it is, but it depends on the opening. They also made this table for the Singer 301. I got my folding FW table on ebay about 2 years ago for $75, but I have noticed that most are going for a little more than $100 these days.

    I paid $20.00 for mine just a month ago. I did have to refinish it. Make sure it has all the parts underneath the table. There should be a locking mechanism underneath the part that lifts out. It swivels to lock.

    The table for the 301 looks different, its blonde wood on top and painted tan around the edge of the table. There is no holding "basket" inside the 301 table and the cut out for the insert looks different too.
