Singer 401a 1956

Betsy and I went shopping today.  Our sewing class was a bust.  Not enough people signed up so we cancelled it.   This is a Craigs list find.  It is in very nice shape.  I looked at the motor brushes tonight.
I think they look fine.  They are not oily at all.  Plenty of life left in these.

The commutator is a bit dirty.
But it will clean right up, I am sure.  Tomorrow's project.  Or maybe I will work on the 301 Long Bed.  YUK.  This one is much cleaner and so much nicer.

  1. I believe that this model was the BEST (non-straight stitch) machine Singer made. I love the strength and speed of this machine. Good find!!!
