*Sew Steady Free Motion Table 32x24" for Home Sewing Machines. The longer your machine arm, the closer to the end of the table the needle will be. If your machine arm is too short, you may need to stand up to reach the needle comfortably with your arms and hands. We recommend a smaller table if the needle is over 10" from the end of of the table.
Note: This table was designed for machines with free arms longer than 13” overall length (not needle to neck) If you free arm is shorter than that this size of table may not be ideal as the needle will be more than 10” from the front of the table.
CAUTION: Do not place anything hot on acrylic. Never have sewing machine arm lower than cabinet insert. Do not stand on, lean on, or apply unnecessary pressure, outside of standard sewing use, to acrylic.
WARNING: Do not use harsh solvents such as Windex, rubbing alcohol, paint thinner, lacquer thinner, acetone, turpentine, or any petroleum based substances as they can cause acrylic to weaken and crack. If harsh solvents are used on acrylic the warranty is void.
I have tried to source a cord but as yet, the only one available is from Grace.
I recommend a 90/14 top stitch needle for freemontion on the TL machines.
I also recommend a TOWA gauge(400tm4) for setting the bobbin tension and a second bobbin case for freemotion.(1 to adjust tensions and 1 to left for sewing tension)
I have found that original bobbins work the best with the TOWA gauge, therefore I stay away from pre wounds. (Other folks have good luck with them).
Oiling (this is just me): I put a drop on the hook with every bobbin. The ports on the top of the machine, I oil 2-3 times a year. Juki Rep
