Like the other high-quality products that come out of Japan, these beautiful mid-century sewing machines reflect the Japanese commitment to quality and precision. Not only are they mechanically superior to anything you can buy today, but they have a styling and beauty that's unsurpassed.
It was made in the mid 1950s before the advent of plastic sewing machines and sewing machine parts. It's all-metal drive is smooth and precise, and it makes a very neat seam.
It uses standard needles and standard class 15 bobbins which you can find anywhere sewing supplies are sold, and the motor is a powerful 1.2 Amp as compared to the .5 amp motor in Singers famous 15-91 and 201.
Last week a delightful lady who sews multiple layers of heavy garment leather in her craft enterprise came out and tried out the twin of this machine. She was very pleased and impressed and bought the machine on the spot, to use alongside her Bernina. I just got an email from her telling us how delighted she is with this machine. It sews her leather items perfectly and with no stress.
It's just come off the restoration bench here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machine Restoration and it's running and sewing like a new machine.
Watch the video we've made of it to see how to thread it, wind the bobbon, sew, drop the feed and release the tension for free motion sewing. See it sew multiple layers of heavy denim and leather. It's entertaining and informative!
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.
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.
