I honestly don't think I'd have the ability to use a machine that went that fast. I have trouble with twenty stitches a second.
Hope that your search for a smaller drive pulley works out well. Either way, the increase in power should make, well...anything...sewable. Impressive.
Here is my Singer 237 that I inherited from my wife's Grandmother. Only used it once so far to attach a couple patched to a uniform. I have big plans for this old girl.

Here she is, just picked her up today from a retired fellow who restores old injectors. I can't believe how clean this thing is. He spent hours pulling parts, polishing, and replacing anything that could wear. Singer 503a with all the original cams and feet. Let the fun begin!

Mtndragon, that is a good looking 403
Now carrying the Mini Tattoo Stove!
Light weight. Low prices. Great gear.
I use a White 1588, has a whole bunch of hooha gadgets that I don't use but it'll lay a straight stitch without much hassle. Works on silnylon to web strap. Best of all it was free. One of these days I'll teach my wife to use it, since her mother gave it to me.
Well, I finally scored one. A freebie at that. Should be good enough to re-learn on. Now to the supply store. Need some needles. First project, tarp skins!!
