I've been trying to get rid of mine.
Send it on over..
I'm working on refurnishing a sewing cabinet. It was my MIL's. My SIL's are NOT to know that I have it. I rescued it, technically it's mine.
Yesterday I had stripped it down. Removed the top. It had been in storage in my MIL's garage and had some water damage that left the tops on both sides warped and moldy. Underneath the tops is a corkboard/ pressed wood? That will be replaced with paneling. It's been sanded down, rough edges smoothed out. Just waiting to be re stained a different color. The drawers will be done and sanded today.
This cabinet is an oldy. I've only been able to find one picture of it. Made in the 1960's. It's a Sears and Roebuck Tri Fold Sewing Cabinet. The sewing machinge mounts on the inside, you fold it down and close the lid when it's not in use.
The problem I'm having now is 1, What is that box for that's mounted on the inside with some kind of connecting cord for? It also has some kind of metal lever that's attached to it.The original machine and bench are gone. Who knows where or who has them.
Here's the pic. What you see is what you get. No way to enlarge it. I've got the part # for the table.
That box really has me stumped. Wondering if it really needs to kept or tossed. I'm modifying the table for my machine. People who have favorited ON SALE Sears-Roebuck Trifold Sewing Cabinet by swampfoxvintageco - Etsy
