you know what I mean, those plastic things with adjustable legs that you can
put round your machine to have a larger surface area supporting your work.

Any idea where I would buy one? Any particular brands available. I know
there is a local store that orders them to fit your machine, but that sounds
expensive, I'm looking to get a cheap one!

If you google 'acrylic sewing machine tables' all the various
manufacturers/types/dealers come up - all prices are variable with
shipping costs - it depends what size you want to have and whether you
want to have any added features or not.

Be careful not to lean on it! I broke mine! DH glued it, but it's just not
the same.

could you tell me the item number, or name of the product, I've used the
search box and can't find it, nor has searching in various categories found
it.

Anne have a look at the one on my website under other crafts.
I made a cut out of the machine arm in cardboard and took it to a glass
supplier. He cut me a 24 inch square of 6mm acrylic glass and then cut
the slot out  to fit round the arm. Cost 20pounds.
DH then made some wooden legs 7 larger ones and a smaller one where it
rested on the front of the machine. He drilled holes and screwed the
wooden legs also he drilled two small holes at the corners of the  inner
edge of cut out so if the glass did crack it would not go further than
the holes.

another option is get a big cheap table, maybe a fold up one so you can put
it out of the way when you dont need it.  then cut out a place to fit your
machine perfectly. add a shelf underneath for your machine to sit on so the
bed of the machine is flush with the table top and bobs your uncle.
theres pix of this in action somewhere and from what i read its not that
hard to do.
probly cost ya no more than what you want and you'd have a whole table.
http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/sewing/msg1118345619916.html?11
this shows the machine flush but has a big shelf.
i was thinking using  maybe perspex or wood and some U shaped brackets to
attach it under a plain table top.
i've been searching off and on all day and can not for the life of me find
the pix.
i'll check some more tomorrow and when i find it i'll post the link.
off to eat dinner soon.

The very expensive one that came with the Pfaff is not fragile unless
dropped on a hard tile floor.

There is a broken one here too.  You can make a simple extension out
of a nice piece of plywood that is cut to fit.  I found a cabinet that
the machine can sit in so the whole table is level.  It has made my
quilting a lot easier and better looking.  The cabinet was $10 and
needed to be cut out a tad and refinished but it works great.

I purchased a Greer Mate for my Bernina about 3 years ago.   It heavy
duty and doesn't have those plastic feet that can break easily.
Google "greer mate" and you will find.  It's adjustable to any machine
- so you don't have to wait for a special order.
It may be a tad more expensive than others but it is very very well
made.

I just bought a beautiful wooden extension table for my FW. The man who
made it did a great job; it even has a little depression cut out where
you'd want to be able to fold up the end to get to the bobbin area. If
you're interested, you can see them at
<http://stores.matsetwoodworking.com/StoreFront.bok>. NAYY -- just very
impressed with his workmanship and his service. :)
