It's a strong, lightweight, slant needle sewing machine with lots of built-in stitch patterns. It also takes drop-in pattern cams to increase your selection possibilities.
It has a full rotary hook for a very smooth sewing experience, and uses standard class 66 bobbins. The bobbins and the standard needles are available from any sewing supplier.
It will come with a pdf manual that you can view on your screen or print out a paper copy, or both. You'll also receive a selection of attachments and pattern cams.
To see and hear it sew, you can watch the video we've made of it. You'll see how to thread it, wind the bobbin, and sew in forward and reverse. You'll see how to set the stitch pattern knobs, and the various controls of the machine.
This beautiful Singer Slant O Matic 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.
Sorry, this beautiful Singer 401Ahas SOLD!
