    And/all of my machines bounce around when I sew on a folding plastic table. But not on a solid wood one.

    That has to do with the table, I tried sewing on one years ago, it was frustrating.

    One of the rubber feet was missing under mine, so I used on of those round felt thing that are stickie on one side and put it were the foot was missing. Works good.

    My advice--if you have a 'handy husband' go to a yard sale and buy a cheap wooden table and turn him loose with it, measure it, fit the machine into a custom hole; this might take both of you working on a schematic (with you showing him all the possibilities where it might not work, or might work) and him doing the grunt work (electric saw, screw driver, etc.)....Keep us posted--my feeling is, if you are using a plastic table, that is your problem....JMHO.

    Try putting a small area rug with the rubberized stuff on the bottom under the machine. It will help.

    Same idea as everyone else, but I use the anti rug slip stuff, thicker than the drawer liner, works great!

    I had one of those bath mats that have suction cups on the back. Did not like it in the shower. Have had it for years. The lite bulb went off one day and I put it under my sewing machine. Works great.

    heavy duty self stick velcro . sometimes you just have to use the table you have. It will still vibrat some but with 4 pieces of velcro as feet it works.
    don't stop!just keep trying and something usable will turn out!!
