This beautiful restored Singer 301 is a lightweight, aluminum-bodied machine in the Slant-O-Matic style. It comes in the strawcloth, trapezoidal shaped carry case and includes the trapezoidal 301 table made by Singer just for the short-bed 301 sewing machine.
Use your 301 in it's table at home, and when you want to go quilting or to a convention or show, or to take it with you on vacation, just press down the release lever and lift it out and slip it into it's carry-case. It's very easy, as you'll see when you watch the demonstration video of it's final test.
As you can see, the table could stand to be refinished at some point. For now, throw a nice looking cloth over it and use it as it is. It's strong and sturdy and ready to hold your machine for generations to come.
This palm-sized section hidden behind the fold-out support leg in the first photo has peeled and should be replaced (or colored in with a matching wood stain). It's an easy job and the veneer can be found at any building supply as an iron-on, meaning you cut it to size with your scissors, put it in place and use you steam iron to heat it until the glue on the back bonds to the wood.
Would you like to see this fine Singer machine run and sew?
You'll see it sew 8-layers of denim and sew 2-layers of split leather in it's final test video. The combination of the huge, empty room and sensitive microphone on my camera combine to make it sound like a tractor running, but this is not the case ( Pay attention to how loud the scissors sound when I rattle them on the table). It has a pleasant Singer Featherweight/Slant-O-Matic sound when it runs.

This fine, precision machine is the follow-up to the famous Singer 221 Featherweight, and uses many of the same parts.
It sews a nice even straight stitch just like the Featherweight, with the new, improved features of the Slant-O-Matics, in a full-size machine. The sewing table features the same clip-in type cradle as the Featherweight card table, in a unique fold-out sewing machine table.
This is an uncommon find, with both the trapezoidal carry case and hard to find trapezoidal table.
Here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machines, we are passionate about what we do, which is to 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.
Seriously, you 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.
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. Read the details of the guarantee here on our website.
