    Thanks for the info, I'll hold off on buying the metal ones until I get a chance to practice on some silnylon.

    I think the family might be planning an intervention.

    This week I purchased a White 167 in a nice cabinet with accessories for $25 ...THEN... I came across a Singer Slant-o-Matic 401a also in a nice cabinet with accessories and a chair for $30 how could I pass it up.

    Those are very nice. They would have both come home with me as well. I'm trying to stay with portables so it's not as noticeable to my wife (plus they don't take up as much room). I passed on a nice Singer 500a in the cabinet for $50 on Friday at an estate sale. Been regretting it all weekend. I'm up to 7 right now of which the last 2 were $9 apiece. Cost me a little more to get them going. Trying to concentrate on the gear making right now to take my mind off of hunting down those darn machines.

    Anyone know which model Singer this is? Looking to add this to the stable. Has a really nice cabinet that comes with it.

    Edit. Looks like a 201.

    It is a Singer 201-2.

    Here's the Adjuster's Manual.

    Whether you need to rewire it or not, these instructions will walk you through cleaning out the motor housing/gears/bearing grease wicks, etc. to put it back into top shape.

    General info and a few bits and pieces.

    Thanks for the links. i just brought it home. It will need a deep cleaning for sure. The motor seems to run the bobbin winder just fine, but not the sewing end of things. I'll have to get it inside before I can take a closer look.

    1941 model. Has the original cabinet, all the original attachments, owners manual, etc.

    Debi...is that a wood base? What's the top look like.

    You can use the serial number to look up the year here.

    Neat looking machine. It would be at home on the set of Mad Men.
