Hi...I'm looking at a 201 on ebay and wondered if any members here who had one could tell me what the harp, or throat, size is. I have sent a message to the seller but sometimes I find they don't understand what I mean.
This one is a 201 (electric, belt driven), not a 201K (if I'm not mistaken). The 201K is the chunkier, thicker machine I think..this one is the older style with the more slender neck, like a treadle machine.

Thanks

I have a belt driven one that we took the motor off and put in a treadle. The opening is bigger then a 15-91. It runs so nice! 201 belt driven~ 7 1/2 x 5 3/4. It is not bad. It has a very nice high opening. Also there are no bulges. It is truely a rectangular space.
