    Yeah its a hollow core door with a filing cabinet on one end and a cabinet under the other. I put 3/4" MDF on the underside and mounted my treadle under it sitting on a stand. I am going to have a solid plank for the next quilting table in the addition. It will be 48x140 finished and I will be able to walk around it on 3 sides.

    Wow, nice to have that much room. My sewing room doubles as a guest room, so am always looking for better configurations for sewing and storage.

I wonder if there is another spring or something inside.
    Thats why it isnt working because it is the wrong tensioner. The 15 is a completely different animal than the 66. I can have the tensioners for the 15 if you need one. Just PM me and I can give you the details.
