    Singer 185J base

    I recently came into a 185J with a broken base..
    Just curious if any of you has one of these machines that's been parted out that has a solid base to sell. I know these things are brittle because of their age. Just looking for something to pop up
    I've been trolling local craigslist, Offerup and Letgo apps. Fingers crossed.

    Here's someone who makes bases for the 185. It looks pretty nice and the price isn't bad

    I'm actually pretty handy with a table saw and have some decent woodworking skills so making a wood base had already occurred to me. The other option would be checking out some auto-repair concepts. Permaflex or JB Weld product. Was hoping for original but there's always a plan B

    The thread on Home Modifications cracked me up. 185's def need to sit up or be in a table.
