Heritage Series- Featuring a beautiful Amish handcrafted reproduction vintage sewing cabinet for the modern Janome 712T treadle machine. This cabinet will also fit many of the older Singer 15 Class Sewing Machines.
The cabinet is available in medium stained oak as pictured standard. You may also select natural oak below; this selection may take an additional two weeks to build.
Cabinet comes with a heavy duty powder coated treadle. Instead of the original cast iron legs this cabinet has wooden legs to hold the treadle. If you have an original cast iron base, we can have a replacement wood top made for you. E-mail us for more specifics.
Don't like the knobs? No problem, you can easily change them and add your own.
The reproduction cabinet top, the front, and legs are all made of solid premium hardwoods. We have upgraded the legs with a new open design as shown in the top picture. Most all the original sewing cabinets used veneer on the top and the drawer fronts. This is one of the common problems with trying to restore an old cabinet, especially when the veneer separates.
Features 3 drawers on each side 12-1/2 long x 3-1/2 wide x 3-1/4 deep with a tilt tray in the middle.
The machine folds away just like the old time Singer Sewing Machine cabinet. Simply lift the machine fold back the hinged front board and lower the machine into the storage position. This cabinet does not have the problematic cable lift system that was used in some of the older cabinets.
Ships UPS in two boxes, some assembly required. Please expect 3-4 weeks shipping on these very popular cabinets.
The legs, treadle and then the cabinet are shipped in separate boxes with holes predrilled for assembly. The legs have threaded "T" Nuts already installed inside the cabinet to easily line up the bolts. Occasionally the pilot holes for the treadle wheel may not all align as the wheel varies. This may require a new pilot hole to be drilled during the final assembly.
Shipping Boxes measure 38 x 20 x 20 for the cabinet and 20 x 14-1/2 x 6 for the treadle.
Overall cabinet measurements are 35-1/2 wide (closed) and 47-3/4 wide (open).
Cabinet is 17-1/2 deep 29-3/4 high with a lid size of 14-3/4 x 20-1/2
Cabinet comes with the head hinges to attach the machine to the cabinet. These are the round metal hinges with the pegs to slide into the back of the machine base.
You may select a universal rubber belt or a leather belt to add to the cabinet when it is shipped.
You may also order the cabinet with a Janome 712T treadle machine. Select this option using the drop down boxes. Sorry, but we cannot ship the Janome machine into Canada. Contact us for the Goldstar alternative machine for Canada customers.
Before ordering this cabinet for an older Singer Machine please be sure to measure the base of your 15 Class sewing machine. Because Singer made the Class 15 machine over such a long period of time and there were so many clones made of it, we cannot verify that all Class 15 bases will fit this cabinet. Some of the oldest 15 Class machines did not have a straight edge base. Customer will be responsible for return shipping cost.
Your Singer Class 15 machine base will need to measure 14-5/8" long and 7" wide. Also from the left end of the base to the outside of the wheel will need to be no more than 16-1/4" in order to clear the cabinet edge as the machine is being folded. This may also be a factor on some of the electric conversion machines as well.
What are customers are saying:
Tammy and I want to thank you for going out of your way to get our sewing machine to us so quickly. Tammy is very pleased with the quality of the cabinet! The fit and finish is top notch. I did have to file a small corner of wood away so that the sewing machine would fold underneath the table properly, but that corner is out of sight so no one will ever know.
The iron work for the treadle is exceptional, and everything fit exactly where it should have. The unit is very well built and will easily last several lifetimes!
S and T
All I can say is that the workmanship on the cabinet is beautiful – outstanding and worth every penny. I must tell you - after the cabinet came ………..you have no idea how impressed I was – the photos online were great – but seeing the real thing – having the cabinet here ………..I feel the photos do not do it justice. The wood is sanded so beautifully and smooth and the corners rounded perfectly. It really is beautiful – a work of art.
