Good to know Tammi. I'll stick with my 411G then. I've been pulling out the 320K for free arm work and will keep doing so happily.

That's debatable.
The item in question:

Get them down to $60 and you have 6 drawers @ $10 each. Not terrible price wise if you need replacements. I'm not sure if the drawer holders are salvageable. Depends on how it was all fastened together. I'm not impressed with the workmanship of the dividers. They're crooked.

I really like this desk and the price is right but doesn't say what the machine is. 3.5 hours away from me so I am hesitating...

I've never seen a sewing machine cabinet like that. Is it a converted roll top desk?
It might be worthwhile to call and ask about it. The desk has been around a while anyway.

Sure looks like this desk did not start life as a SM cabinet. I'd bet it is a conversion.

Seems like a roll top desk would be a real pain in the rear to use as a sewing cabinet, unless you were only sewing small stuff.

Of course they neglected to post any pertinent photos that show how the machine sits in or on the desk.
