I can't help myself! When I saw this 1958 Singer 403A Slant-O-Matic posted on Craigslist for $20, I jumped on it. It's 22 pounds of steel geared awesomeness. I now own two vintage sewing machines and I'm afraid it's going to be three before long. The family that sold me this one had a 1940's Singer 19-50 in perfect condition for $50. This machine, the 403A, was purchased in 1958. The lady that owned it is now too old to sew. It is in fantastic condition. There is just something about a precision made piece of machinery that I can't resist. It will be around and still be usable long after I'm gone.
