I posted these pictures on Facebook a week or two ago when someone asked me about my stand. First of all, my machine is a Brother PR-650 “Entrepreneur” 6-needle Embroidery Machine. I got it from Sewingmachine.com and I LOVE it! The only thing better would be a 10 needle… Anyway, it didn’t come with a stand and I ended up getting this Craftsman tool chest from Sears. I think this is it? HERE They shipped it to the store and I picked it up there and it was less than $100. It works GREAT and has lots of STORAGE! It also has wheels (which lock). We have wheeled it in to my closet a time or two so the wheels actually come in handy.
As you can see it’s turned sideways, but is the perfect width of the machine with the drawers to the side. Yes, that is my wedding photo in the background… almost 10 years ago that photo was made (May 12, 2001)!!
I had a lot of people ask if it vibrated, and the answer is “a little”, but no more than it would on a regular table or stand. This chest is very heavy, especially with the weight of the machine and all of the *stuff* in the drawers. They are full of hoops, extra stabilizer, etc. As you can see below 3 sides of the chest have a lip, so the machine is not going anywhere!
I love the storage! I keep the majority of my supplies in these drawers. The top drawer is full of all of my hoops. The other drawers are full of fast frames, heat N bond lite (my 8 rolls), stabilizer, my bobbins and other embroidery supplies.
