Vintage Singer 401a Sewing Machine

Completely refurbished and fully-functioning Singer 401a, made approximately between 1958-1963. This is one of the best machines Singer ever made.

The machine still has it’s original mid-century cabinet, although the cabinet could use some paint/creativity. The machine itself has been removed, completely cleaned inside and out, lubricated, and the light has been rewired. It runs smoothly and can be operated either by foot pedal or knee bar. Anyone interested is welcome to come try it out.

Included accessories:
Regular Foot
Zipper Foot
4 metal bobbins
5 stitch cams
I can get other accessories for it as well, just ask.
The manual is available online for free:

NOTE: The cabinet is in the process of being refurbished. This item will be unavailable for pickup for at least 2 weeks. If you are interested, and would like to pick the color that it will be painted, please inquire ASAP. The price will be adjusted to reflect the cost of refinishing.
