    Joe, you are so resourceful. Ah, love the "don't mess with me" look that Pollyanna has.
    Sweet Caroline

    I looked and all I saw was the plastic ones. Next time I'm in there I'll look again. Good chance I missed them.

    I'll have to try to find these. I think I have at least one case with an iffy latch.

    Wonderful idea. If you can't find those would those clips used for holding mirrors on the wall work?

    Ccorazone,
    If you mean the ones like this that I tried on the Aldens:

    They did work but not as good as I would have liked. They are too short from the screw hole to the end of the arm. And they are made of a more brittle plastic. I just didn't trust them.

    Oooooooo....look at all of those pretty stitches!!

    thanks for posting this idea. I think it would be wonderful idea if I ever get around to making a few new boxes for some of my machines.

    Pollyanna wants you to stop playing with your machines and pay attention to her!!!

    Oh Pollyanna gets lots of attention. She is one of the most possessive kitties we've ever had.

    As soon as I get some projects finished, if that every happens, I'm going to build a case for my 99K, Rusty. He doesn't have a home yet and I haven't been able to come up with a 3/4 size case. I've got some ideas on what features I want to try to design into it, but until I get to it nothings on paper.
