Such is the way with my shop. It is a huge mess. I tried the mantra "Less is More." I suppose one day I will believe it. Less stuff means more space. The key to organization is less stuff. I spent some time today trying to organize. I did manage to get the table next to the work bench cleared somewhat.
I lit a fire in the stove and when the temperature rose to 60 got to it. I love yellow carpenter's wood glue. It holds well and sets up quickly but is forgiving for a bit of time. I needed a weight to hold the top in place and a Singer 27 was just the ticket. You can see the glue seeping out of the joint. I wiped it off with a damp rag.

I also serviced the 158.1802 that I took in last week. http://mysewingmachineobsession.blogspot.com/2013/11/it-doesnt-power-on.html. I really must take a photo of the machine. It is lovely. I have never seen a more perfect smocking stitch ever. What a privilege to work on such a nice machine. If I wasn't trying to get organized I would be on the look out for one.
Do you believe that I am not? HAH !
