How to remove a vintage sewing machine from it’s cabinet. At first glance it seems like it would be an easy task. Removing this machine from it’s cabinet actually took me over an hour.
I looked under it to try to figure it out. I knew that it wasn’t that difficult, I just forgot how to do it.
Unscrewing this screw allows the machine to be lifted up (and toward the back of the cabinet.)
Once the machine is lifted up, there are two small screws that release the machine from the “hinges”.
You can see the hinges here, where I removed the machine. That was the easiest part.
In this picture I have the cabinet turned upside down, looking into all the stuff that needs to be removed.
Basically you will remove EVERY screw you see.
There are a LOT of screws.
Voila! all of the screws and their hardware are finally gone.
