I see the 301's as a totally different machine due to the gear drive motor, larger scale design and drop feed dog feature. They are a slant foot style and I believe their motor is stronger due to the gear driven quality. Their motors are not as removable and easily replaced as that of the FW
They share the flip up bed and decals and portability of the FW, as well as the placement of the bobbin.. (the more 'senior' members will be able to expand on this. If I am not correct, please re-direct in a gentle way)
..In all due respect know that I love the Featherweight and own them as well.
Having said all this, Would Antique Machine Enthusiasts might like a thread to discuss the 301's?
Does anyone else feel they should have their own discussion thread?
Happy Stitching All!
