301

Courtesy of Linda S. Black, longbed = NA114614, 1951, Two Tone, shortbed = NB005630, 1959, Mocha, longbed = NA140778, 1951. Long and short extension beds were made. All made in the Anderson, South Carolina factory. Rotary action. In-built carrying handle. They are full size, slant needle, straight stitch machines with all metal gears, internal motor, dropping feed dogs, reverse, light and removable cords.

They use the same bobbin as the Featherweight so the bobbin case is the same as the FW (and just as pricey). The 301 needs a special cradle to cabinet mount. They will not just attach to the normal Singer hinge pins. With the cradle (which does attach to Singer hinge pins), the machine can be quickly removed.

A trapezoid shaped cabinet called No. 74 Spinet Cabinet was designed for the Singer 301, examples may been seen in Singer Cabinets, Cases and Other Items > Singer Cabinets and see Singer Cabinets, Treadle Bases & Cases for other examples. The 301 card table is slightly larger than a Featherweight card table.

The 301 (some machines say 301A) was made at Singer's Anderson factory. It was never produced in Kilbowie which is why they aren't generally found in Europe or Australia.
