Three 401A Singers
Betsy hates 401s. I love them I learned how to sew on one and I just have the best time fiddling with the stitch selector knobs and making all those fun stitches. "Too many steps" complains my friend. consequently the machine baffles her. I offered to take it off her hands and work on it but she needs it as a model for the one she will service. Then maybe I can grab it and see what is up with it.
I did service the motor today. I remember when I first serviced a 401 motor. I was very nervous about getting into "Ingrid". But I did it with some help from a photo tutorial on one of the groups.
It took me a long time the first time. Today it took me about 20 minutes. Next time it will take less time. Oh my, I wonder what kind of shape "Sal's" motor is in? That is this kind of motor. Oh boy won't that be fun?
