I was looking for an all-purpose sewing machine that could handle a wide range of materials, from delicate fabrics to leather, and this machine was a wonderful solution. Though it is twice as old as I am, it runs perfectly, and it's really easy to learn how to use it. It does need some cleaning of its gears, because the oils used several years ago weren't synthetic & have gone rancid--but the layout of its all-metal gears is so intuitive, I've been able to do a lot of that work myself--and been able to put it back together again, too.
The only thing I wish I'd known about it before I bought it is that it only sews a straight stitch--I don't need most of the fancy stitches that modern machines boast, but I do need a zig-zag, so that was a bummer. Apparently there's a zig-zag foot you can get, but it only works on heavier fabrics.
I am using it to sew protective dog vests and it is performing well. Just hums right along. Having difficulty with some thicknesses, however, it was 3 layers of cordura, 2 layers of rug binding and another 3 layers of cordura and another layer of 4 bindings. wow--I wonder why it hesitated? Great machine
I needed[wanted] a Singer Machine and found the one I wanted. The machine was better than what the
ad stated. It operates quieter, smoother and gives me a very nice finished product. I would recommend
this dealer to anyone. It was a very good transaction.
this is not the machine i purchased, mine was just a plain old industrial machine by necchi...someone hijacked some of my accounts, so maybe they bought it under my name....
