One of the most reliable sewing machines ever built and way ahead of the competition when it was built in the 1950's. In fact, when my mom's newer sewing machine died on her I told her I would loan her one of my 401's until I sell it. This all-metal machine has a metal gear drive for no stalling or slippage so with proper care you may just pass it down to your grandkids. And even though it is not an industrial sewing machine, it can actually sew leather like an industrial machine... Just not recommended to sew it all day.
World's first zig-zag machine for home use made entirely in the USA. First automatic with a slant needle and gear drive for easier seeing and for smooth sewing. First with double easy threading.Built-in threading chart, handy "drop-in" bobbin in front of needle. Built-in, eye-level stitch chart with user controlled knob for changing to a fancier stitch.
Unless you see a note from me in the invoice then it is not from me but from eBays automatic invoice sender. Please look at all the pictures because they are an important part of my item description.
I try to capture any imperfections with pictures and then try to explain them in the item description but with senility combined with one of my kids asking me if 2x + 8 = 7 what is "x". Then I have to explain algebra, negative numbers, and decimals...
Then I forget to describe the pics. To see the different choice. The item "Singer 401A Sewing Machine Made in USA" is in sale since Thursday, July 07, 2016.
