    Featherweight cabinet on ebay.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Scarce-No-68...item1e6ef8a9db

    Looks to be worn in all the right places, don't think it is a repro. Nice looking, be interesting to see what the price goes up to. Only 99 cents right now. Hushand a bit worried I might make a try for it and don't really need another one to squeeze in here.

    If you are looking for a bag to put a fw in.......and not necessarily an original.....then get a bowling ball bag. Take the ball rack out and the fw fits in very well and very easy to carry.

    I looked at it and it is $100.00. Must have realized a mistake.

    It has a reserve.. I don't waste my time on bidding on anything that has a reserve because most of the time it is priced way out of my range. Most of the ones with a reserve start at .99 . I am curious to see what it goes up to and if it hits the reserve.

    The bid now is up to $316 with reserve not met. It's obvious the seller knew he had a desirable piece.

    It is up to $316 now! Looks good. Definately an original. I have plans to make one, but haven't yet. It is located in Illinois.

    Kathy-do you have actual building plans or a pattern to make one? If so where did you purchase them? I thought I remembered once seeing plans for sale - but at the time didn't think I knew anyone who would make one-now I have an idea of a man who might. Would be interested in purchasing pattern to build one.
    This too shall pass.

    Even if it is an original, I was thinking it looks homemade. If you're handy you could could make one that's a lot nicer then that. I wouldn't even be tempted to bid.

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Now up to $326. and change with only local shipping in the Galesville Illinois area.

    Can't do it. Interesting to look at, however!

    Looks like a nice cabinet, I didn't know that they made them for FWs.

    I did learn something from the ebay listing. What that little screw was for down on the right side, in the cabinet. Could not figure it out on ours. It is to stop that half of a shelf that folds up so you can get your legs under there to sew. See, a old dog can learn. They do have places online that makes the reproductions. Just google, Featherweight Cabinet which is also called a #68 cabinet.

    Here's an ad for an original on the International Sewing machine collector's society website.

    Well, reserve not met, cabinet been relisted at a, buy it now, $850.00. Made it too $405.00 with 16 bids. Be interesting now to see where it goes. Love my cabinet, big table with machines on it in dungeon for sewing, but FW cabinet tucked in corner in sleep chamber for "can't sleep" times. Nice for the piece work on the quilts but really not big enough for putting the quilts together, slide off the table problem.

    It went for $450.
    Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.
