Actually the extraordinary quality of craftsmanship at the time of her production, allowed for just low level detailing, just to reveal her astonishing beauty. The results are more than obvious in the photos of this listing. Apart from the great looks, she packs an amazing strength, which is more than obvious when sewing thick or hard materials.The quality of stitch, for which she's so well known, is second to none! Operates quietly and smoothly, thanks to the Horizontal Rotary Hook (the standard choice for industrial sewing machines), and the high level of craftsmanship in manufacturing process. Actually the only thing you can hear when in operation, (apart from that of the motor) is the sound of the thread, sliding on the tension spring and that of the needle penetrating the fabric!!! The precision mechanics incorporated in this model, together with the high level of "forgiveness" in her settings, are beyond anything produced in the last years that i've came up across.
And i have come across quite a lot of them. Capable of sewing from lightweight fabrics, up to leather, canvas, sail cloth or multiple layers of denim, provided the correct needles and thread are used. Features: forward, reverse & dropped feed dogs which makes her capable of free machine embroidery/darning. This is the creme de la creme of vintage sewing machines and the best machine that Singer ever produced.Often referred as the Rolls Royce of Sewing Machines she is o verbuild to outlast generations upon generations! Capable of 1,100 stitches /min was a workhorse in her time and although she had a quite pricey tag, people had the opportunity to have a great, reliable, high quality sewing machine at their home, putting her in production and break even in a timely manner. This was not a tool for "times needed" or decoration purposes, this was a real semi-industrial sewing machine in which people back then, relied on her capabilities for their income. The Final Singer 201 was a BROWN/BEIGE mk2 , and by 1963 it was no more. The finest sewing machine the world had ever seen, became just too expensive to manufacture. Cheaper, uglier, noisy plastic machines which when operating, you think by the noise they are doing that they are grinding their internal parts, took the place of these engineering marvels, only to be overcome (finally) by these Black Beauties by the shear persistence of their heavy duty, long lasting quality and user friendliness they pack. She will be lovingly packed and delivered to her new owner by post/courier, or can be collected for free. I would be happy to provide additional photos, video or answer any questions.
