With it's full 1 Amp motor (compared to the half-Amp motor on the famous Singer 201) and it's steel gear-driven hook, this is a machine that will handle your heavier projects. You'll sew with confidence the projects that you wouldn't dare try on a modern, plastic machine.
Besides the quality and power, you'll be entranced by the beauty and awesome styling of this stunning piece of 1960s history. This is a sewing machine that will lend itself most favorably to the decor of your home or sewing room.
It uses standard needles and standard class 15 bobbins that you'll find anywhere sewing supplies are sold and it comes with an nice accessory kit in a genuine Free Westinghouse metal attachment box. It comes in a sturdy but tattered carry case and includes an assortment of useful presser feet and spare bobbins, a large and a small screwdriver. an edge guide and a quilting guide, and a double needle to make the most of the decorative top-stitching possible on this great sewing machine.

As with any sewing machine that has actually been used and loved, you'll find small chips and pin scratches. These are normal signs of use and to be expected.
This fine sewing machine has just come off the restoration bench and it's running and sewing like a new machine.
Here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machines, we are passionate about what we do, which is restoring beautiful vintage sewing machines to the best that they can be, because we are in love with the styling, the quality of the materials, the workmanship that went into these great machines, which just can't be duplicated today.
You, seriously, cannot buy a machine this good, new.
So we search out the best of these fine machines, the ones that are very lightly used, and open them up. We disassemble the tension, the motor, the bobbin case, take off the faceplate, the gear cases, the hand-wheel, the slide plate, the bottom plate, and the back access plate and get down to where the old dried-on oil and grease are. We clean out the packed-in lint and dust, remove the thread-jams, inspect the hook and the needle plate, and generally look for potential problems.
We use high-quality lubricants in all the right places, getting into those spots that aren't as obvious to the average user, and clean out the old hardened grease from the gear cases, and we test the machines to make sure that they are sewing at their best.
After all of this, each machine is carefully detailed, to bring out it's original beauty. These are some of the finest examples of mid-century styling that you'll find, and we want each machine to be the very best that it can be.
Because we believe in these wonderful, built-to-last machines and in the work we do, we offer this free Lifetime Guarantee:
If you ever have a problem with one of our restored vintage machines, just bring or send it back to us and if we can fix it, we'll do so for free. You, of course, will pay for any parts or shipping.
