It's a steel machine with an internal motor and gear drive, throughout. It's full rotary bobbin and gear drive make it a very smooth sewing machine, and it's strong. It easily sews 8-layers of denim or canvas.
Though this beautiful machine has been disassembled and spiffed from the inside-out, the bed has the usual pin scratches and small chips.
As you can see, we like to leave stickers and labels as we find them, to show where the machine's been. This machine came out of OSU back when it was Oregon State College. It must have come from the costume department as it doesn't show the wear of a student machine, though of course, it has normal pin scratches and small chips.
This fine Singer sewing machine comes with a digital user manual that you can view on screen or print out, or both, a button holer, a zigzagger, and a nice attachment set with large screwdriver, small screwdriver, awl, narrow hemmer, wide hemmer, zipper foot, shirring foot, edge stitcher, binder, and ruffler, all in original Singer boxes with manuals.
This fine Singer 201 sewing machine has just come off the restoration bench and it's running and sewing like a new machine.
Watch the videw we've made of this machine to see how to thread it, wind the bobbin and how to sew on it. See and hear it in action before you buy.
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.
The power cord that you see here has been replaced even though this one was safe, just for quality's sake.
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.
