Cool Singer 411G, Singer 401G and a Singer 401A Slant-O-Matic Singer machines

I will have to do about one picture per little window here so this doesn't crash - please be patient.

I have a fascination with the Slant-O-Matic Singers. I've been very blessed with several different ones. I am hoping to load some pictures to show just how different they can be.
My Singer 401G was one I found in the trash. He isn't very pretty - mechanically he is a wonderful machine. The Singer 411G is much prettier but she has a couple broken spool pins. Notice that the fasten on different than the 401s. The Singer 401A is what most of you know and love and it, too has a broken spool pin.

Ok now you have met these machines. Are you ready to look at the details?
It will take me a little time - please be patient.

Singer 401G is pretty much like the 411G but the printing is pretty much all worn off the 411G singer-411g-401g-401a-003.jpg

Singer 411G - this can be threaded to make a chain stitch! Note the threading diagram is different from the 401A

The tops of the G machines are different than the A machines, too - the bobbin is wound at the top of the G machines and on the front of the A machines.
