You may have seen this machine before. It's one of Singer's finest ever. Such a sweet little machine, the direct descendant of the famous 221 Featherweight, it's the Singer 301, first of the Slant-O-Matics.
You can hear the Featherweight influence when you run this machine. If you know the Featherweight well, you'll recognize the sound of the bobbin and bobbin case. You can see the Slant-O-Matic in the color, the internal motor and built-in sewing light, and of course, the slant-needle design.
It's a strong, lightweight, full size sewing machine, a steel drive in an aluminum body, with the strength to sew everything from sheer and lightweight material to multiple layers of heavy fabrics like denim and canvas.
This is a straight-stitch machine and we'll include an original Singer Automatic Zigzagger so you can do zigzag and fancy stitches as well. We'll also include an attachment set and a pdf manual that you can view on your computer and expand the pictures as much as you like to see all the details, and/or print it out to have a paper copy, too.
It uses standard needles and the bobbins are plentiful new or used nearly anywhere. It features a marked throat plate and dropping feed making this a nice quilting machine and it's very lightweight and portable, too.
The carry case is a beautiful trapazoidal, strawcloth, trimmed with leather, and the foot control is like none we've seen on a Slant-O-Matic before. It's all color matched to the machine; control, cord and connector.
This fine 301 has just come off the restoration bench here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machine Restoration and it's running and sewing beautifully.
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.
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.
