This is a lightweight yet heavy-duty machine that will sew heavy fabric and even leather. It's a steel machine in a lightweight aluminum body.
Just like the 401A this fine Slant-O-Matic machine's got lots of built-in stitch patterns and with the addition of the drop-in pattern cams it will sew scads more.
With this Singer 500 you'll also receive the original manual and an attachment set that includes some starter cams. You'll want to collect more though, and you'll find them everywhere on the internet.
Watch the video we've made to see it sew multiple layers of denim with heavy seams and leather. See how to thread the machine, wind the bobbin, how to sew in forward and reverse, how to set the stitch pattern dials, and more. It's Entertaining and Educational!
This machine 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, it's SOLD!
