Morse Fotomatic 4100, Vintage Japanese Sewing Machine

The Morse Fotomatic series of sewing machines are awesome Japanese-made machines and this white one with blue and tan trim is one of the prettiest I've seen. With it's 1.2 Amp motor it's strong and fast so you'll be able to sew heavy materials and garment leather as well as medium and lightweights.

It's been very lightly used so it has it's entire useful life ahead of it and even though it's in such great condition, we've taken it apart and cleaned the dried on oil out of the various mechanisms and assemblies so that it's running free and smooth, like a new machine again.

It's a zigzag machine that uses standard needles and standard class 15 bobbins which you can find anywhere sewing supplies are sold.

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 home sewing machine this good, new, at any price.

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.

Here's how we restore these fine vintage machines.

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, though on this Morse 4100 we did touch up some chips along the edge of the bed that we felt caught the eye too readily.

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.


So Sorry! It's SOLD!
