Pfaff has built many exemplary machines and the pinnacle of their 20th century production came with the 362 “Stop Matic”, aside from the plastic controls which are prone to cracking, the machine is an absolute marvel of German engineering.
This example is in spectacular condition (perfect dials) but has not been used since 2004, when it’s original owner passed away, Upon inspection the machine was pristine and spotless which suggests it may have been cleaned and serviced before going into a long retirement.
It comes with an original Pfaff cabinet with a vertical lift assist, which makes lowering the machine for storage, or raising it up to it’s sewing positions effortless, an insert for the table makes the machine a flatbed, while raising it up offers the flexibility of a free arm.
The machine came with it’s manual, accessories, and stitch wheel which shows you how to set the machine to do all of the stitches it is capable of. I have an original Pfaff tin for the accessories and I might even find an original sales receipt when I go through all of the drawers. These machines were very expensive in the 1960’s, selling for the equivalent of $5000.00
There is very little do do cosmetically on this machine but she is a wee bit sticky, so we will go through everything and have her up and running perfectly once her many moving parts get lubricated.
Almost tempted to keep this one, but think she will be enjoyed by someone who really appreciates some spectacular engineering and would appreciate the beautiful cabinet and lift.Follow us on Facebook
