Air Lift for Sewing Machine Cabinet?

MHargrove | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

I know this is a longshot, as you folks are probably not much into woodworking, but maybe there’s somebody here with dual interests (or with a spouse that has the “other” hobby). 

 I’m building a sewing cabinet for my wife to house her Pfaff.  She’d like a lift installed, and after doing a little research, I’m interested in the “Soft-Touch air lift” that seems to be pretty standard in Horn, Koala, and other cabinets.  The thing is, I can’t find a source for the lift itself.  Does anybody have a clue where I might find them? 

Also, for those of you that have factory-built cabinets from the previously mentioned mfgs (or any others) that use the air lift — how do you like it?  Does it work as well as you wanted?  Is there a better lift you’ve ever seen/used?

Thanks very much!

    Mark, I don't know about an 'air-lift', but there is a sewing machine lift listed in the latest Rockler catalog.  I think they used to have a couple different kinds, but I only see one listed now.  If this isn't the one you are looking for, they might be able to help you find the one you want.  (

    Another idea would be Highland Hardware in Atlanta, GA.  I don't have their web address, but I am fairly sure they do have a web site.  They carry a lot of speciality/unusual stuff, and might be able to find it for you.  If you want their addresss or phone number, let me know and I will search it out.
