Default Table for Singer Featherweight~~~Question

Please someone help me to know how to find info on this.
Billy or anyone who can help me.
I found an antique base to a treadle mach this morning.
I have a featherweight table that I would like to remove the legs from and attach to this treadle base o use for me featherweight .
My table has the FW label on the back
is quite old but there is no opening cutout to drop machine in
I have tried to research this table to see if it has value before I do anything to it. I have not had much luck.
I have never seen one without the opening surface on Ebay ither.
Any help would be appreciated.

if it is the real FW table...it is pretty valuble.
In the back of the quilt mags, there is a man that makes reproduction FW tables...he is from the Midwest...and is very knowedgeable about everything FW. Has a very old fashion name. I would try to contact him before doing anything.
Otherwise go to a forum for FW's. Someone on there would know what's what.

Susie I don't have a magazine and I don't know how to access a forum. I know it's not reproduction because the man who gave it to me is mid 80's and has had it forever before he gave it to me.

Can you post a picture? With the standard FW card tables, it is hard to imagine using a treadle base, so I wonder if the card table is the one you're talking about.

There was an extension for one of the FW tables, so perhaps that is what you have. I believe it only came with 2 legs of its own, but someone could have taken it apart from the table (which had the cutout) and attached 2 more legs to it.

There was another FW cabinet with an oval top. If you have that one it is quite rare.

If you have a FW table that the man had forever you definitly don't want to cut it up. It is worth a lot of money. Some on EBAY listed theirs for $350 plus shipping. I pd $105 for mine with no shipping. got it at a local auction sale. In some of the quilt mags there is a guy who makes the repro's for $179 plus shipping.
