    It won't fit in the existing hole but lots of other vintage machines will.

    No it won't...It is too small...There are tables that were made for the FW's but they are scarce and expensive. I have seen some tables that were made by hubbies for their quilting wives like us ....

    its too small and it also doesn't have any holes in the back of the machine to mount onto the cabinet's hinge pins.
    You need a card table meant for a Featherweight, I own such and table & I like it. They're not a rare item.
    Here's a link to an ebay auction that shows what the card table looks like.

    Thanks for info I am torn between wanting a feather weight or trying to find a treadle that works my gut instinct. Says go with with feather weight and forget about the treadle. But I'm still not sure which way I want to go
