While browsing through the search words or phrases that have brought people to my blog, I noticed a few were searching for how to remove a vintage Singer sewing machine from it’s cabinet so I thought a quick picture post was in order.
We’ll be demonstrating with my vintage Singer 15-91 that lives in the Art Deco sewing machine cabinet that my husband, Dave refinished for me.
First, if you haven’t already done so, you’ll want to lift the machine out of the cabinet and tilt it all the way back.
On the underside of the machine, you’ll see two copper hinges.
If you look directly above each hinge, you’ll see a screw that is holding the hinge in place.
Loosen that screw on each hinge. There’s no need to remove the screw, simply loosen it enough to be able to lift the sewing machine off the hinges.
To return the sewing machine to its cabinet, place the hinges in the upright position.
Then lower the machine onto the hinges and re-tighten the screws firmly to hold the machine in place. Do Not over tighten the screws or you risk stripping them, not to mention making it more difficult to remove the machine should you need to do so again in the future.
Return the machine to the upright position for use or lower it into the cabinet and close the lid to store.
