Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machines

Here at Stagecoach Road Sewing, we love these beautiful, built-to-last-a-lifetime sewing machines, and work to bring them back to the very best that they can be. We take them apart, inspect, clean, lube, adjust, and generally look for any problems or potential problems. Then we detail them to look like new and test them rigorously. Find your dream machine, here.

This great Atlas B5 sewing machine was made in Japan and is powered by a 1.5 Amp motor. What a Machine!

The sewn sample under the presser foot is the leg seam from a pair of Levis, doubled, and it sewed it easily.

I asked Loni, the sweet lady that's in charge of the sewing machines at one of our local thrift stores, if she had any old machines and she didn't think she did. I said it didn't matter if it worked or not and she remembered tossing this one in the dumpster. She brought it out all locked up with varnished oil, chipped and dirty, with a piece of the belt guard broken off.

This wabi-sabi Atlas Japanese sewing machine was saved from certain destruction. You really cannot buy a new sewing machine with this kind of quality.

"Faux Singer 7" As it turns out this Is a Precision Deluxe, and the model name of this Japanese Precision Deluxe sewing machine is "Singer". Not a Simanco product at all. Still it's a great sewing machine. Faster and stronger than the Singer class 15 machine that it's patterned after.

"Faux Singer 5" The Patch-o-Matic foot pressure adjuster on this machine instantly releases pressure with a touch for darning, applique, and other free-motion sewing.

There are so many Kenmores out there in so many different variations. Did you know that nearly all of the 1950s and 1960s Kenmores were made in Japan? This Kenmore 13033 is one of these high quality machines from the 1960s. Strong, fast, and smooth!

Since most treadle sewing machines in the USA are from the early 20th century they're usually a pretty basic black, straight-stitch machine. We wanted to create an Awesome Treadle sewing machine so we took the 1.5 Amp motor off of a Japanese Universal de luxe Super Zigzag and installed it in this basic treadle stand. Your leg-strength is far greater than the power of a small electric motor so this machine is gorgeous and strong. This one sold the first day we showed it.

We usually only post sewing machine pictures but this vintage Kenmore heater is so stylish that we couldn't resist it. I fits right in with the styling of the mid century machines we sell. Put this one in your vintage trailer or add it to the decor in your home.
