    I'm posting some picture of my 2 singer sewing machines. The 1 singer, I've had for a while. The other singer machine, I bought today for $30.00. The women said she's taken care of it, and had thing's done to it to keep in good running condition. I don't know why I bought it. Now I have 2 singer's, and 3 Husqvarna/viva/victoria/viking. And 3 irons. I was telling a friend, and she said it this way. BOYS AND THERE TOYS. I never thought of it that way.. Take care everyone, and WELCOME to the new members. Don-isewman

    My 1st singer sewing machine. I use the heck out of it also.

    i love it when these old timers get rescued -- you are their angel -- i have three elnas and two singer featherweights -- when one goes into our shop -- another gets pulled off the shelf -- no downtime here

    i even goes so far as to talk to my machines as if they were girlfriends -- i swear there has been so many times i thought i would run out of bobbin thread at a critical point -- but the girls came through

    Those 404s are pretty cool - they were used in Home Ec classes back in the days when girls learned to sew. The Singer 401 is a fun machine.

    The 401 uses the built-in cam stack for zig zag and some of its decorative stitches. There are also additional decorative stitches available, but require additional, external cams.

    This site has some great information about the 400 series of machines:
    http://blog.sew-classic.com/2008/10/...ne-review.aspx

    Here is a comparative list of the stitches that the 401 & 403 machines can make. (note: the 403 uses only the external cams)
