Certainly, the 401A Slant Needle machine is one of Singer's very best sewing machines. To find one in this fine condition and fully restored, too, is a wonderful thing.
This fine Slant-o-Matic has a lightweight aluminum body and it's packed with high-quality steel innards. It's got all the power it needs to sew heavy material and even garment leather and the finesse to sew medium and lightweight material.
The slant needle design puts the needle right out in front and the built-in sewing light shines in just the right place so your seam is easy to see. The myriad built-in stitch patterns give you lots of options for fancy and utility stitches.
Included with this beautiful machine are the foot control and cords, spare bobbins, large and small screwdrivers, 4 additional drop in pattern disks, attachment set, and a Singer professional buttonholer.
You'll use universal needles and common class 66 bobbins, available anywhere sewing supplies are sold.
We've had the pleasure of getting deep into this machine and pulling out the pattern forming assemblies, the tension, hook, plate lifter, the needle bar and presser bar with their attaching linkages, motor and more to scrub the parts in an alcohol bath. We removed the dried-on oil and dirt that keeps things from sliding, rotating, and moving against each other freely, like they used to.
What we didn't need to take out, we washed and scrubbed in place, and flushed the old oil out of the joints before we oiled them with our own special blend of oils. We polished the parts and as we put them back on, we tested each assembly.
After reassembly, we tested to be sure everything is working just as it should, smooth and easy. It's running and sewing like a new machine.
We believe in these fine, built-to-last machines and in the work we do, so if you ever have a problem with this machine, just bring or send it back to us and if it's something we can fix, we'll do it at no charge to you. You, of course, will pay for any parts or shipping.
You can read the details of our guaranty on our website, http://stagecoachroadsewing.com. It's short and easy to read.
