I love the Atlas with it's great styling, cool decals, fabulous colors, and it's 1.5 Amp motor. It's one of my many favorites.
I asked Loni, the sweet lady that's in charge of the sewing machines at one of our local thrift stores, if she had any old machines and she didn't think she did. I said it didn't matter if it worked or not and she remembered tossing this one in the dumpster.
She brought it out all locked up with varnished oil, chipped and dirty, with a piece of the belt guard broken off.
With a whole lot of love, this great machine is running fast and strong, and it's ready to sew just about any home project you want to throw at it.
The sewn sample under the presser foot is the leg seam from a pair of Levis, doubled, and it sewed it easily.
If cosmetic appearance is all that matters to you, you'll probably want to consider a different machine. If you are a serious crafts-person or garment-maker this may be the machine for you.
Made in Japan, it displays the traditional Japanese commitment to quality and workmanship.
This amazing, powerful, and high-quality Atlas sewing machine has just come off the restoration bench and it's running and sewing like a new machine
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.
Sorry this machine isSOLD!
