Oh my! I scored big time on this little beauty. My latest scavenging acquisition is a 1951 Singer 403 Slant-O-Matic. Would you believe only 25 bucks from the Period Costume department sale at Greenfield Village? I did have to spend a tiny bit more in parts, but now she’s purring like a kitten. I’d love to keep her but she’s a gift for my mother. Mom may have a few memory issues but she still loves to sew and this machine will be sweet and simple for her.
I also have to give a shout out to The Sewing Machine Man in Wyandotte who helped me put the new parts in. The very best garage shop I’ve ever seen!
