This Dressmaker is no exception, either. This is a machine that will grace any sewing room and handle just about any material you'd expect to sew on a home sewing machine. You'll sew right over those leg seams on your levis and stitch that leather purse with ease, and of course, quilts, baby clothes and party dresses will be a snap.
This one's just come off the restoration bench and you can see in the photos that we get deep into where the old sticky oil and dirt gum up a vintage machine, and clean it right down to the metal so it turns and moves freely again.
You don't have to settle for someone's garage sale find and hope that it works. We inspect, clean, adjust, fix, test, detail and then test again to be sure that your new vintage machine is working like it should, and then we add our amazing Lifetime Guaranty so you can be sure it will keep working.
This is a Japanese-made, straight-stitch machine that uses standard needles and standard class 15 bobbins that you'll find anywhere sewing supplies are sold, and it comes with a vintage button holer and an array of nice accessories.
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 (really!), 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 face plate, 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, then we test the machines to make sure that they are sewing at their best.
Each machine is tested at the restoration bench and then tested again by our quality control technician to be sure we haven't missed anything. She's not only a master technician, she's a seamstress who knows what a seam should look like.
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.
We don't try to hide the scratches or chips that have been honestly earned in service to their craft. We like the wabi-sabi beauty of a working sewing machine.
Finally, because we believe in these wonderful, built-to-last machines and in the work we do, we offer this free Lifetime Guaranty:
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.
Sorry, it's SOLD!
