Hi all,
I have a love-hate relationship with this table. It's the one featured in Nancy's Notions that folds up. I got it from AllBrands, disregarding the no-return policy because of course, I was going to love it.
My machine bounces like crazy on it. I have a DC3050 Janome and am using the medium speed. I do have a towel under the machine to help raise it up to the height of the table. (It's sunk into the hole). There is space around the hole -at least an inch or two- not sure if this is part of the problem but I'd be willing to pay someone to make an insert if it would help.
I decided to look up one of those super tables Tony's Sewing Center sells at quilt shows and out of their Maine store but they are $499 and up. A little rich for my blood.
So, hopefully, someone here has some suggestions. It doesn't help that I volunteered to make 50 drawstring bags for a school event on this coming Tuesday so it's particularly aggravating me.
Thanks in advance,
lots2do

I have one but have yet to use a machine on it.
After reading your comments, I'm going to try it out tomorrow.
I bought it several months ago, so returning it no longer an option. It'll be a lesson learned if I have the same trouble as you.

Let me know, Golly, what you think. I guess I can always use it on the top of the table.

I bought something, not a table, from Allbrands and they sent the wrong item. It took 3 months for them to send a return athorization. It was for a Christmas present and I ended up getting a replacement in March. So I will not ever buy anything from Allbrands again.

I have a fabric sale from my home this weekend, will set it up on Monday.
If it does what yours does, maybe together we can figure something out.

I have that table, have you adjusted the screw on the bottom to bring the table up to the level it should be? Maybe use something besides a towel if you still need a little more height after you have adjusted it, i have a couple rectangles of batting. Here is a video from Leah Day that might help.

Also if you are still having trouble, call the arrow company, i have found they have excellent customer service! Maybe they could help somehow.
