you need the valium Mojo and I feel a little more realxed about my current space :-)

I work out of my stepdad's garage and he's areal slob, he opens the door and slings junk in all the time.
It get a bit depressing working in there so i'm keeping my fingers crossed I
get the house i'm after so i can build a new workshop from scratch
and keep it as clean as yours.

This photo shows my work area for upholstery. I can fit two cars in front of it.


Dude!  Where'd you get that sewing table  :o I want one!  That's a sweet setup.   Oh, as for shop setup, when I get it figured out, I'll let you guys know.  Right now I'm still trying all sorts of configurations.  Basically, nothing works really well because everything I need right now for this job is buried under the stuff I needed for the last job.  I think it's what comes with trying to be all things to all people.  If I could settle on a specialty I'd be way ahead.

The cutting table I made myself. It's very sturdy and nice to work on. The top is MDF and I'm considering putting a laminate on the top.

The Adler long arm in the back is a really great machine. It has been in the family for a long time. The Singer 144W305 in the foreground of that photo is new to me. I just bought it a month ago. It is a really nice setup with the Mitsubishi LimiServo motor and pneumatic foot lift and reverse. It will sew through ANYTHING!

Slodat, I think June was referring to the table supporting the machine with the grey head.  I noted that, too, BTW, June!

I've seen benches like that on the Juki website, usually for machines that are typically operated standing up or as part of a multi-function station.  I love the idea that one can adjust not only the bench height but the tilt, as well.  Very cool!

That machine was a factory machine at Freightliner before they moved their operations to Mexico. That table is very cool. It has a motor for up and down and a hand crank for tilt. Sadly, I use it in one position. It does make getting it in said position very nice.

your Adler look to be similar to the Durkopp i sold , like an idiot  :o

I wish i'd never sold it as it was a fantastic machine, 2 years on i still haven't
found another. Mine had air foot and servo motor.

 Never sell it, you'll wish you hadn't .

Yeah, I was referring to the yellow table.  Looks really heavy-duty. What's that logo on the end of it?  I'm guessing it's manufactured for some other purpose and the sewing table top retrofitted to that frame.

This is the sticker on the yellow stand.


As far as the Adler long arm goes, I plan to keep it around. It in in the shop getting a tuneup. I just purchased this from Gregg at Keystone.


It has a needle positioner to make the long arm a little easier to use.

Thanks!  I found the workstation on this website:
  http://www.jtc-ergobuddy.com/
under the "Adjustable Height Work Stations" section.  Nice looking gear - and made in the good ole US of A.  But, I'm betting a new one is at least a grand.  That's before you put a sewing machine table top on it.  I might send an inquiry later.

How do you like that needle positioner? How do you change from stopping in the needle down position to the needle up position? Can it be turned off?

I haven't had much chance to use the positioner - I put the head in the shop for a tuneup shortly after getting the motor. The operation is pretty slick. "Toe down" on the treadle works as usual - controlling speed. The neutral treadle position is like normal also. Heel down raises the needle to the highest point. Pretty slick way to do it. Worth the additional few bucks in my opinion.
