Thanks so much for the help I received from members concerning my mom's vintage Singer 201. I got it going and it sews a beautiful stitch and the motor is so quiet. It sews better than my $1000 Bernina Activa 230. Those new machines will never last as long as the old ones. My 201 is 72 years old. I just love her. I think I'll name her Peg after my mom.
