Item details

THIS IS A EXCELLENT SINGER 401A SEWING MACHINE

The Singer 401 is a sturdy built machine featuring and all metal construction, drop in bobbin and smooth rotary hook. It’s ability to produce many decorative stitches with the built-in cam stack and additional, external cams make it an extremely versatile workhorse. The 401 is considered by many to be the best machine Singer ever built. It is strong, versatile, and does a variety of stitches, and will stand the test of time. The 401 is a fantastic all purpose machines for altering, general, as well as home decor applications & various crafts. They have good piercing power when properly maintained and used with the correct needle and settings. They will stand up to heavy use and some abuse and still purr along nicely with only minor care. These machines were NOT cheap when when they were first produced. In 2010 dollars, a Singer 401 would run you about $2,800. These superbly crafted vintage machines will will long outlast any new machine on the market.

When this machine was produced, it cost about $350. Do you know what that would convert to in today's dollars? It would cost $0.00...you know why...you cant get an all metal gear driven machine, at any cost today

The 401A Slant-O-Matic feature moves the needle over 1-inch closer to the operator. The average bed is 7 inches wide and the needles are usually centered. On the Slant-O-Matic, the needle is less than 2-1/2 inches from the edge of the bed.


The machine features a all metal gear driven slant needle, zig zag design with internal design disks.

THIS 401 IS IN GREAT CONDITION... THERE ARE SOME PIN SCRATCHING ON THE BED...

2) DOES NOT HAVE AN EXTERNAL BELT DRIVEN MOTOR THAT IS MANY TIMES 220V POWER

3) DOES NOT HAVE AN OIL PAN AND PUMP TO CIRCULATE OIL IN THE HEAD OF MACHINE THAT MUST BE CHANGED ON A REGULAR BASIS

4) IS NOT DIFFICULT TO CONTROL AND SLOW SPEEDS (MOST INDUSTRIAL MACHINES ARE DESIGNED TO OPERATE AT VERY HIGH SPEEDS)
