Singer 401 -advice needed on economic restoration???
Hi, an ebay buy at 62 gbp, lovely, almost mint cond externally but.......a graveyard lay inside: motor needs rewin Id, gears totally worn, innards all rusty. Elecs/foot control all need replacing. Case mouldy with LIVE woodworm!!!!!
Good news: could use aesthetically for parts.
Question: my very honest experienced repair man says not worth a repair............what do you think?
Am I wrong to want a slant needle singer, when I already have 201s, a 306, a 301 and four fws?
I had heard slants were THE best for machine quilting, what do you think? Should I bother hunting down a working 401???
Thanks, ellie x
