Cylinder Sewing Machine Flat Bed Attachment

Recommended Posts


After seeing a flat bed attachment for an Adler,

I decided to make one on my own for my Artisan Toro 4000.

Thought you might like to see it. It is pretty easy to make and cost a lot less than the commercially available ones.


It's made of 1/2" plywood. I used a piece of 1/8" x 1" Aluminium to make a strap to hold the bed securely in place


Another view of underside


There are two guides, easily moved or removed. When both guides are used, you can sew a perfectly straight line on a strap or belt.


Cutouts on the wood were done with a scroll saw.

If you didn't know, the scroll saw is a great piece of equipment. It can cut almost anything, including leather.

I watch a guy in 8th grade split one of his fingers on a scroll saw too, worked real good, he got almost past the nail before ne realized it.

Awesome table, I love the way you did the edge guides! Well done!!!

Didn't the guy feel any pain??

Did the teacher tell anything about safety before he let people use the machines?

It's a good thing that guy wasn't learning a radial arm saw hehehe

Scroll saws are usually very safe

Thanks for your compliments!

Yeah he felt it. He never really paid attention to much, kinda a space cadet, good guy just kinda out there.

I was sitting at my machine sewing a belt wishing i had a guide on the left. Flattop came with mine, I will be giving it a facelift. Actually might do that to my Singer too. Its amazing how the simplest solutions can sometimes escape us.
