“The finest Straight Stitch Sewing Machine”
for sale
Probably the most famous sewing machine every, the Singer 301 / 301A (yes, sold many more than the ‘Featherweight’). Very solidly built! Way ‘stronger’ for heavier duty work than the smaller, Featherweight (that is belt drive btw). Just a little bigger than a Feather Weight and slightly more weight and is improved in a few areas. Features drop feed control, more desk area than a featherweight and the mechanism is completely gear driven so it runs very smooth and there are no belts to glaze, break, stretch, SLIP (when doing heavier work like Denim or Upholstery / vinyl / leather) or wear out. The motor is stronger making it faster at the higher speeds and capable of heavier work I have owned a few of both, and use this and another 301A myself (just did some upholstery work on my boat vinyl and ‘Sunbrella’ canvas top and some leather and denim work). 

ü We have gone through it, cleaning inside and out, removing all the old, hardened lube of yester-year from everywhere inside the machine, lubricating internal mechanism and replacing any worn AC cords sections.

ü Drive clutch disassembled, solvent cleaned and re-assembled.

ü Motor removed and disassembled. Brushes cleaned and inspected. Commutator gaps cleaned. Commutator plates cleaned and burnished. Bushings and axles cleaned and re-lubed prior to reassembly. Worm gear scraped of old, hardened grease, solvent cleaned and re-lubed. Internal motor feed wires inspected and are fine.

ü New bobbin tire installed (with a ‘spare’ included).

ü Original bobbin case, Simanco #45750, with new release lever installed  (Just FYI: the ‘Chinese’ bobbin cases have not worked in any of my Singer 301’s as their ‘leading edge’ is too ‘steep’ regardless of how they’re advertised). 

ü Foot switch disassembled, cleaned and inspected prior to re-assembly.


ü New 'Tall' rubber, bed cushions ordered and installed (sets the machine slightly higher and grips a table / work surface better.

ü About 6 hours of service time. Overall, it's had service just short of a ‘complete disassembly’.

ü Extensively tested after service (as I’ve been using it and my other one interchangeably for tasks here sewing multiple layers of vinyl, ‘Sunbrella canvas’ and denim. Works great with heavier, UV rated outdoor upholstery threads as well.

ü Original gloss black finish with delicate gold decal detailing ("Prisim" pattern) in good shape with normal wear (spotching, worn spots etc).

The Slant Needle design allows a better view of your work and won't pop any cross-threads (We read that the "Slant" needle was designed during WWII to sew nylon parachutes). The “301” series can sew up to 1,600 stitches / min. It will go from ‘forward’ to ‘reverse’ stitching with the flip of the control. You can do it as quickly as you want with no issues (I do it all the time).

•Hinged Bed Extension permits quick and easy removal of Rotary Hook cased bobbin.

•Hinged Face Plate - Simplifies cleaning and oiling.

•Dual Tension takes the guess work out of upper tension setting.

•Flexible Spool Pins - bend but do not break (very important) - thread unreels smoothly and easily.

•Completely Enclosed motor and principal working parts in-sure maximum safety.

Runs and looks great. I've sewn quite a lot on this machine following it's service (I have another 301A and have decided I don't really need two. I've used the Singer Feather Weights as well, but they just don't have the 'horse power' that this does, and it's just easier to use this larger machine).
Original black finish is in decent shape overall. Has some dull ‘splotches’ that wouldn’t easily clean off or polish out. Not sure what they are or what they’re caused from. Features ‘Prism’ pattern, original gold decaling. Also features recessed and bright work light built-in! Comes with original tweed case in fair condition and variable speed remote control footswitch with a new wall plug and great condition wire.
READY TO GO!!!

There’s a lot of info on this machine on the web.

The highly sought after Singer Feather Weight Portable sewing machine. If you own one you prize it. This one is spectacularly clean as is the original issue case! Just back from the tune-up shop and includes receipt for work done. READY TO USE!
Includes all accessories shown above including:
- The Ruffler (x2)
- The Gathering Foot
- The Edge Sticher
- The Deluxe Binder
- The Foot Hemmer
- And of course the normal straight stitch foot plus a couple of extra's. Also includes extra bobbins, a copy of the owners manual and many other extras! This machine is in beautiful shape and the finish is near perfect. Hard to find any flaws with it. It looks and runs, well as they say, "like a sewing machine". We just picked it up from a full tune-up by a shop and are including the receipt with it. They fully cleaned and lubed the machine, adjusted the timing, installed new felts, new light bulb and a new belt. They then test sewed with it as they do with all their machines. We also installed a new AC supply side cord to the remote foot speed controller for years of trouble free service. The case is also in very fine shape with all the original latches, hinges and the handle. Also includes the "elusive" Case Lock Key that is typically missing and a Brand New pack of correct needles. Works perfectly. If you have been looking for a "Real" Singer Feather-Weight then here you go. You won't be disappointed.
