This fine Japanese-made sewing machine is impressively powerful and fast. It feels very much like a Pfaff 130 with it's smooth, strong, and speedy stitch.
This is a straight-stitch machine and it uses standard sewing machine needles and standard bobbins that you can find anywhere sewing supplies are sold, and the full one amp motor is about twice as powerful as the motor on the famous Singer 201. This is a machine that will sew through multiple layers of heavy material and even leather.
This machine came to us with the motor you see in the photos, and we made the choice to leave the motor the same color that it came to us, rather than try to color-match and paint it. If it's essential to you that the colors match, we can do that for you, for an additional fee.
We've just taken it apart to fully clean, inspect, adjust, lubricate and test it, and our amazing new detail person, Aradia, has spent many hours bringing it back to it's original beauty.
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.
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. 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.
