Most every time there's a picture on my blog with my sewing table, I get a few comments asking about it....so I figured I would give this wonderful piece of furniture its own post.
Meet the Horn Multi Lift 5000!!
This little table makes my sewing life so easy and fun.
When I first started sewing, my table consisted of an unfinished door setting on a small plastic table. It slid all around and vibrated when I sewed. It was about as bad a setup as you could get.
Then my husband bought me this for my birthday, definitely one of my all time top 10 presents.
The table is 72 inches long.
and can be either 30 inches or 40 inches deep. This little 10 inch flap here goes up or down. I always have it up.
And even though it's quite heavy, 252 pounds, the rollers make it easy to push around the room and also lock to keep it in place.
I do all my cutting on this end.
So this is what the machine looks like most of the time, just sitting in that little well, doing its job.
it pops right back up. It must have been calibrated at the factory for my machine, because it knows right where to stop for a perfect fit.
But this is what makes this table so wonderful, it has a hydraulic lift that will lower the table to
29 3/4 inches or raise the table to
42 inches. I'm able to program the lift to stop at the perfect height for cutting or sewing with the touch of one button.
I use this feature multiple times everyday I sew. Up, down, up ,down, I'm never bending over or straining my back.
If you look at this table on line from the Horn site, here, you'll notice a drawer on the lefthand side of the table. I took that off, first thing. I like to roll back and forth on my chair across the front of the table and kept running into the side of that drawer, I've never missed it.
But here's my absolute favorite feature.....
