This beautiful example of mid-century design and quality was made in Japan, before Americans understood what "Made in Japan" meant. It demonstrates the same commitment to a fine, quality product that has made Japanese products so desireable, around the world.
It features a motor with more than twice the amperage of the average sewing machine motor (the famous Singer 201 uses a .6 amp motor, as opposed to the 1.3 amp motor in this machine)and an all-steel gear drive. When you watch the final test video we've made of this machine, you'll see it sew through 12-layers of denim, through 4-layers of split leather, and through boot leather.
The classic design of this mid-20th Century sewing machine features a beautiful two-tone finish in cream and soft, misty sky blue. The bold analog displays and touches of chrome grace a body that suggests the power that's built into it. The crowning touch is the atomic starburst motif, so popular in this period.
This is a zigzag machine with twin needle capacity and an automatic buttonhole feature with an analog, ("ca-chunk, ca-chunk") lever-action dial.
Here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machines, we are passionate about what we do. We restore beautiful vintage sewing machines to the best that they can be, because we are in love with the entire genre. The styling, the quality of the materials, the workmanship that went into these great machines 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. In our final test, which we video for you to see, we test them on sheeting or flannel, on 8 or more layers of denim, and on at least two-layers of split leather. You'll be able to see and hear your machine sew, before you commit to adopting one of these beautiful machines for your own.
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.
