I know this is a rather old thread, but I'm bumping to find info on a Consew 101. I just bought one and am looking for anyone that has owned one or any information about the machine and it's capabilities. The machine I bought was owned by a lady named Ruth who was the personal seamstress for Gene Autry for many years, and used this machine to make costumes for his band and curtains and waitress uniforms for restaurants at Anaheim Stadium when Gene bought the Angels. I bought the machine for my daughter to learn to sew on and she wants to start a home-business making purses. Anyone out there know this machine? Thanks for helping a newbie.

Thank you for posting the info about Bob; I will contact him and pick his brain. Yes, I did download the manual, Dede, and there is a wealth of good stuff in there for a 12-page manual. Great pics too, thank you for that link. I have purchased a new industrial-style table and leg set with all new wiring, switch, and lamp, and I have been learning a great deal about sewing machines and how they work by switching it all over to the new table. The clutch motor that came with the machine had been replaced shortly before the previous owner passed away so it is still in great shape, but I want to get a new servo motor so my daughter can learn how to sew with more control over the speed. I have been looking at the Premier CSM 550 and I can get it locally for around $100; would that be a good choice? I am also interested in some information about the capabilities and intended purpose of the Consew 101. The manual mentions "sewing of light and medium cloth, at a speed of 3500 perfect stitches per minute in continuous operation". Would that be appropriate for materials used in making purses and handbags? How about leather or suede? Again, thank you all for helping with this hurdle of ignorance. I picked up this machine along with a Consew 75C Blind Hemmer and a drawer full of supplies, extra feet, and other unknown stuff for a little over $100, so I need to learn about this in order to get my daughter started.
