I think of passing it and holding out for a 500 or 500A or am I missing out on something if I do? Anna
    Some people prefer the 400 series to the 500, sometimes simply because of the style of the machine itself, or because the front and top doors are less likely to come off .
    I prefer the 403 to the 401, because there are less levers to push/pull/ hang from etc. The simpler the better for me!!
    If the machine has all its attachments, etc. and is in good condition and has been cleaned, oiled and adjusted, that doesn't sound like a bad price to me--I have sold them for that much. However, if parts or attachments are missing or the machine is scratched and dirty, I wouldn't pay that much.
    Miz Johnny, I have 500A And for the life of me I can't find a front door I know there's one on top and one on the side. but the front? Anne

    No your not going to see the numbers on the Singer site. I have a 9W and they do not have their numbers listed and it has Singer all over it!!

    I have to go look at mine to see where this face plate is. I've never heard that term before.

    It was that last stroke--I'm speaking of the door on the "face".

    If you sitting in front of the machine like you are sewing on your left hand side is where the faceplate is. It will open up and tell you how to thread the machine. and you adjust the presserfoot tension there also.

    Ok, I won't worry about the Singer 9 W until you get the needles and try them out. Are you going to then sell needles to all of us that have the Singer 9W or the Wheeler /Wilson machines that take the 127X1 (Boyle #18). I really like to treadle on the Singer 9W -- it is very easy to use.

    I could also order some needles, but I only want a few of the industrail needles -- don't need thousands!

    Thanks Billy,

    Nancy

    They take size 127 X 1, which are obsolete, but can be found. Send me a PM if you can't find one.
