This is a strong machine that will sew anything a motorized machine will, and more. With this fine American-made sewing machine you can sew quilts and little dresses, but you'll also sew multiple layers of heavy materials like denim, canvas, and even garment leather. This is because your leg muscles are far stronger than a little one Amp motor, yet the big flywheel in the treadle stand makes it effortless, and this steel sewing machine can handle a lot more than a modern plastic machine.
Imagine sewing in the whisper quiet of this powerful machine with no motor noise.
Included with this beautiful piece of American Craftsmanship will be the most comprehensive and artistic user manual I've seen. You will also receive the button holer with it's user manual, the accessory kit in it's own box, a wheel-marker in it's original box, and two great sewing manuals published by the White Sewing Machine Co.
As you will see in the photo the top of the treadle stand lid, as is very often the case, has a large stain, most likely from a flower pot. You can refinish it yourself if you are handy or take the lid to your local refinisher if you don't want to tackle it, or just make it a nice place to display one of your pretty textiles.
Here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machine, we are passionate about what we love doing, 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 bobbin case, take off the face plate, 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 take out the needle bar and all it's linkages and the presser foot bar and all it's parts and put them into the alcohol bath to remove the years of sticky oil buildup that bogs down a vintage machine and robs it of speed and power. The main shafts, bearings, and other parts get cleaned in place to make each machine run as free and light as a new machine.
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.
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, and rarely re-paint because we prefer the original paint in most cases. We like the wabi-sabi beauty of a working sewing machine. And if the stickers from the various repair shops they've seen aren't too damaged we leave those, too, so you can see were your new machine has been in it's lifetime.
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.
Sorry to say that this machine has SOLD!
