I was thinking of writing an article on why you should consider buying a vintage sewing machine… started off by saying that these were built in a bygone age where quality and craftsmanship were at their peak, and when a sewing machine was designed to last through many generations.
Realized that it would be the shortest article ever methinks.
I just serviced another 401A which is going to be used by a the grand daughter of the original owner, it looks and runs like new, and nothing was worn out save for a damaged hook.
I serviced this 401A last week and it shines like a new penny and purrs like a kitten on warm milk, and is 60 years old.
They are brilliant machines and I really do think the 4xx series Singers are the best machines they ever made.
