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.

Cleaned inside and out, this Japanese Kenmore moves freely like a new machine.

We even took apart the motor and cleaned the shafts, polished the commutator, and burned the excess oil out of the carbon motor brushes.

We took out most of the moving parts and dropped them into the alcohol bath to remove the old, dried-on, sticky oil that bogs down a vintage sewing machine.

Kenmore 158.17520 Sewing Machine, Made in Japan for Sears.

The Morse 4100 Fotomatic, made in Japan in the 1960s, restored and ready to sew for the rest of your lifetime, and then some.

Then, of course, we detail the outside to look it's best, too.

Of course, we still had to take it apart and clean it from the inside-out because that old dried-on sticky oil in the joints and on the shafts really rob a vintage machine of speed and power. Once everything is gleaming clean and oiled, they run like a new machine.

It came to us in beautiful, barely-used condition.

You've seen Morse sewing machines and maybe even see a Fotomatic or two. Check out this one. It's a Morse 4100 Fotomatic.

Everybody loves lots of goodies to go with their new old sewing machine.

The 401A is a slant-o-matic and you can see how the needle bar slants to bring your work right out in front of you for great visibility of your project.

Why do we keep restoring Singer 401s? Because we love them and so do a lot of people who know good sewing machines.

This one came to us just barely used at all.

It's pretty hard not to love a sewing machine like this Pfaff 130.

Even the screwdrivers and the 70-year-old paper sack are emblazoned with Pfaff's vintage logo.

The Pfaff 130 is widely considered to be one of the best sewing machines, ever.

Of course, we couldn't resist getting deep inside it.

And the drop-in pattern cams make lots of stitch patterns possible.

This Kenmore Model 52 is a strong machine with zigzag and straight stitches.

The mid century Kenmores were mostly made in Japan and what fine machines they are!

It's a Precision Deluxe Dressmaker, made in Japan in the 1950s.
