This one is one of my personal favorites, though I must admit that I have a lot of favorites since I'm exposed to so many wonderful mid-Century Machines.
Not only is it a lovely machine in a silvery lavender and cream two-tone, but it's a very high-quality machine, very smooth and fast. It uses standard needles and standrd class 15 bobbins available anywhere sewing supplies are sold.
It's powerful 1.2 Amp motor has twice the amperage as that of the famous Singer 201.
Watch the demo video we've made of it to see for yourself. You can see and hear it run, and you'll see how to thread it, how to insert the bobbin into the bobbin case and that into the machine. See how to sew in forward and reverse and how to drop the feed and release the foot pressure to free-motion sew for darning, quilting, mending, etc.
Made in Japan, it displays the traditional Japanese commitment to quality and workmanship.
This fine Kenmore 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.
The leaning spool pin has, of course, been replaced since it's photo session.
Sorry, it's SOLD!
