Seller: melsvette (2.786) 100%, Location: Paragould, Arkansas, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 202909633183 "Singer 301A Black Slant Needle Straight Stitch Sewing Machine w/Case+Attachments+Cord+Foot Pedal" This is an "as-found" Singer 301A black shortbed slant needle straight-stitch-only sewing machine which can be mounted into a Singer cabinet with the 301 cradle (not included). What "as-found" means is that I have pulled this machine from my collection that is still exactly as I bought it from the original owner, so I have not cleaned, serviced, or modified it in any way. It is ready for whatever way the new owner likes to service a vintage machine. I am having to liquidate before I have time to tinker with it. I have a brown Singer original foot controller with cord and attached 301 plug, but there is a nick on the cord insulation that you'll want to tape over. The power cord is also included, BUT, one of the 2 wires is broken in two right where it joins the 1-piece Singer machine plug. The plug is not the older 2-piece type that comes apart but the solid type, so you would either need to replace this plug (or the plug with the cord--available on ebay) or splice or maybe even electrical-tape the broken wire back into place. The machine moves smoothly, and I have no doubt it will sew fine when the power cord is fixed. I don't want to plug it in as it is. Also included is a very nice cardboard box of 301 attachments. The adjustable hemmer is a "blackside" one as shown. You get it, a ruffler, a binder, and an edge stitcher/joiner plus one original vintage 301/221 bobbin. The original 301/221 bobbin case IS included in the machine as shown, and it is a nice one. This alone usually sells for about $100. The machine itself is in good condition but not minty. It has obviously been kept dry, and the bottom oiling plate/cover is present. The hand wheel and needle move very freely together, though the machine will need some oil and possibly lube. I have only taken a damp cloth and wiped away dust. The decals look quite good except for being missing on the very top of the machine by the built-in carrying handle. The paint has a few nicks, scratches, and flaws but overall will make a quite lovely machine even with just some oil wiped over it. And finally, the worst part is that the top board of the wooden cloth-covered carrying case with the carrying handle attached has come loose at its original seam at one end. The corner triangular wooden strip that goes inside the corners is there, but this corner needs glued back together, an easy fix with some wood glue and clamps. The dark brown trim on the back also came loose on the stitching along with the top board but could be glued back down to the case side. The dark brown trim has some damage and a chunk missing on the front side as shown. But overall, the case does have good bones and isn't moldy. With just some wood glue, this could be a serviceable case though not a beauty. As it is, do not pick it up by the case handle. The case does have its original metal holders intact for the foot pedal, cord, and oiling can. Also, the 2 top latches work great when the top board is held in place correctly. The bottom feet are on the case, too. This comes from a smoke-free environment but has the typical "old Singer" smell. I haven't met one yet that doesn't. If you like the 301A and have always wanted a black shortbed one, or perhaps you just want a 301 for its famous straight stitching, here you go! Remember this model does ONLY straight stitching (but does it perfectly!), and it has adjustable stitch length, reverse, and drop feed dogs. It is a slant needle Singer, so it only uses slant needle attachments and buttonholers, etc. I am very experienced at shipping sewing machines and will pack this well both inside and outside the case. I have even successfully shipped entire treadle sewing machines! Thanks for looking!
