    Thread Injector Find

    I have been reading about everyone's thread injectors and lusting after the old Singer 301/401's. Well, I am in Oklahoma visiting during the holidays and my wife wanted to hem up a pair of my dad's pants. My mom said we could use hers, which had been stored for at least ten to fifteen years. I took it out of the case and it was a pristine 301A, with ALL the accessories! SCORE!!!! This thing has all metal gears and is emaculate! It sews like a.... like a sewing machine! This thing is fast, solid and a real beauty. I'm in love! Mom said I can have it since she is 85 and can no longer use it and I will, I can assure you! All kinds of new gear ideas are popping into my head. Ain't moms great!?

    Good find!

    That's a thread injector, not a sewing machine!

    (Reminds me of Doc Watson, who said. "That's a horse's foot in the gravel, that's not a train!")

    Mom's rock!

    technically, this is what we call a 'gloat'
    congratulations on continuing the family tradition; be sure to pass the knowledge along to the next generation as well!

    Correction: "Thread Injector"!

    Thanks, Mac! I stand corrected. It sews like a...thread injector! KerMegan, it will stay in the family! And you're right, gloat, gloat!
