Today you are going to read Singer 4452 Review which is a heavy duty sewing machine that can be classified as a decent entry-level sewing machine with some impressive high-end features. One may argue that it is not 100% heavy duty and we agree as it is not full metal and has some plastic (hard type) exterior parts, but having said that we still feel it is a durable and high-quality sewing machine which gets the job done pretty well…but for a price. It is not the cheapest sewing machine out there and depending on your budget and sewing skills the price may or may not appeal to you. Let us take a closer look at some of the features and aspects of the 4452 Heavy Duty model in this detailed review.
Features of Singer 4452 Heavy Duty Sewing Machine:
We will not say that this model overflows with some amazing features but it does have almost everything you need to sew comfortably and with good results.
You can tell just by looking at the machine that is going to last you for a very long time. The metal frame and stainless steel bed plate give the machine a robust look and feel, despite some plastic exterior parts. The plastic parts do not really bring down the ‘heavy duty’ feel of the machine because it is hard plastic, the really durable kind. It weighs around 15lbs which gives the machine enough weight to stay put and sturdy on your table or countertop and will not shake or move much while you work. The overall shape and size are compact so you can easily place it anywhere without sacrificing too much workspace.
The motor is quite powerful and you can actually sew heavy fabrics such as denim and leather with ease. If you love to sew quilts you can do so using this machine. The motor is definitely stronger than most standard sewing machines.
There are 32 built-in stitches to get you started, which include basic, decorative and stretch stitches. For those who enjoy creating decorative pieces can mix and match to create some unique designs. An automatic 1-step buttonhole is also included that does the job for you. All you have to do is place the buttonhole foot and select the pattern and stitch settings to get accurate and smooth looking buttonholes every time.
This is located at the top and comes with a clear cover so you can always keep a check on your thread supply.
You can disengage the feed dogs when you are working on a project which requires free-motion sewing such as when quilting or making your own designs. The drop feed’s work is to lower the feed dogs which allow you to move the fabric as you like.
Automatic Needle Threader
It is a known fact that trying to pull a thread through a needle hole requires too much concentration and puts way too much strain on your eyes. You can now give your eyes the rest and care they deserve and give all your time to concentrating on the sewing part instead of wasting time on threading manually with the automatic needle threader.
Adjustable presser Foot pressure
Depending on the weight and type of fabric you are working on, you can adjust the presser foot’s pressure to give you the right amount of press. Adjustments can be done with simple turns on a dial. It comes in a pre-set position which is just about right for most kind of sewing but if you feel that you need to change the settings you can do so by turning the dial clockwise or counter-clockwise for loosening or tightening.
The machine has three needle positions for all kinds of sewing projects such as when adding a zipper or piping, a top stitch or just regular stitching. The needle can be positioned to either right, middle or left depending on the task.
Accessories are meant to make things easier and give you that extra touch when working on your project. You will love all the heavy-duty extras which are included with this product such as the even feed/walking foot, clearance foot, heavy duty needles, screwdriver, alongside other essential items.
If you are just learning how to sew or have never used a sewing machine before, you will find all the information you need in the instruction booklet that comes with the machine. It is recommended that you read the guide even if you are familiar with sewing machines because each machine is built differently so the manual has been designed to help you understand how it works.
