Singer 51w Post Bed & 143w / 107w Flat Bed Setup on Cut Down Singer Stand

Recommended Posts

I took sooooo many pictures while puzzling together this setup but most pics turned out to dark. :wacko: Tried to brighten them but they were just too dark. So here are just a few of the done setup.

Now this is my setup for the 51wSV2 post bed machine I have restored and I also want to use my 107w1 and 143w in this table.

Wanted to have a smaller foot print stand with folding extension. So I cut down the center bars by 5" and glued them together with JB Weld and some thread rods and dowel pins (can post pictures if someone is interested).

The new table top is beech wood oiled with boiled linseed oil - that makes a nice warm vintage look (looks much better in real life). I added a DIY 1:3 speed reducer and the motor is a 1975 made Italian OCEL / Moretti step motor (I think it is called step motor - we say "Anlassermotor" - its not a servo motor). Works very well so far but I´m not sure if I will keep this motor but I will test it for a while.

Some pictures...

When I was done and insert the 3 machines one by one I figured I had to make a small correction in the cut out... and then...  the router guide moved :ranting2:

Have to fill it with some wood filler :wacko:

That looks beautiful.  The boiled linseed oil really warmed up the beach wood.

Great job as usual Folker, Nice BLACK machine there and great job on the table also, when you open your OLD IRON shop i will maybe pass by and buy a machine from you Lol...Interesting little sliding drawer there.

Very nice job! I did something similar but couldn't bring myself to cut the metal frame!! Interesting solution to placing the drawer, I had to leave mine off.

Thanks a lot folks :)

Jimi, the machines are not for sale but I indeed ha have to "rethink" the space for my machines maybe I can cut my bed in half or I can put one in the bathroom - who needs a shower when you have a rain barrel or lawn sprinklers :lol:

@ scoutmom

I cut out 5" in the middle of the 2 bars, drilled some  2" deep hole in either half (3x 8mm on the rear bar and a few more 6mm holes on the bottom bar) filled the holes on either side with JB Weld and insert 6mm thread rods (rear) and 4 / 5mm dowel pins (bottom). Why dowel pins and thread rods - well I just used what I had - no special reason. Make sure the holes in either half line up as good as possible but since the holes ware wider than the diameter of the rods / pins you still can adjust them a bit. Join the 2 halfs, line them up with a water level or what ever you have and clamp them to a table, let JB cure for a day - done... Its for sure not as strong as the old cast iron but it works.

You're far too good at this Folker. Really like the roll top drawer. I'm thinking you're gonna have to move into a warehouse eventually. Well done.

Thanks Folker.   Space is an issue.  So many beautiful cast irons being destroyed and so little space.

Wow, those are some serious modifications, it looks great! You definitely possess the ability to design and construct. I totally understand about space being at a premium .... love to put more machines in my small shop.
