    Singer 401A

    Got her for 20.00 last weekend at a flea market. Brought her home, cleaned and oiled her and she purrs.

    They had two just alike but the other one was missing the bobbin cover. They were both in cabinets but I didn't need or have room for a cabinet. They were asking 35 each so I talked him into selling one out of the cabinet for 20.

    Usually when I find one for less than $50 it has the selection knobs gummed up a bit.

    Lucky you! I paid a lot more for mine a few years ago. This is a great machine, but not all that intuitive. Do you have the manual?
