    Looks like it would work, however there's not much throat space on the machine shown and you could only use a pattern
    that would fit the space inside the machine throat space.
    Hope that makes sense... Looks like about 6 inches max. with machine shown.

    Yup, I've been saving up for it.

    Did you see this You Tube demo?

    I think $150.00 was very expensive. I have been trying to have my husband make one, but can't find the wheels.

    Even if you bought the kit, you still need to buy $10-15 worth of extra parts.

    Between the kit and the extra parts, I just don't have that kind of extra money.

    The thing is you can use any machine on the frame. I have a 201-2 with a very large throat space which would be great.

    The machines sit on the smaller board with wheels.

    If you lived closer and I could figure out the pattern my husband would make one for you.

    Are you definitely buying it? It looks really nice, and I think it would work fabulously. From my understanding you still need extra parts to finish the kit. Because the pieces are too big and heavy.

    Keep me posted!
