Review Of The Singer 4423

If you’ve ever wrestled with a basic stitching machine to comply with the demands of denim, upholstery vinyl, leather, canvas, fleece, and quilts, you’d always value heavy-duty sewing machines. By design, a heavy-duty machine is made to adequately cope with the stress and strain from sewing thick materials.

Ordinarily, there are numerous machines that fall into the large and capable category, but only a handful can compete in performance with the likes of Singer Heavy Duty 4423 sewing machine. 

A product of the famed Singer manufacturing company, the Singer 4423 can be trusted as a solid sewing machine which leaves nothing to be imagined in terms of durability. It’s a commonsense expectation that the inside of this machine is a metal chassis, hence its power to meet with the obligations of several layers of fabrics. 

Contrary to your perception of a heavy-duty machine, the Singer 4423 doesn’t weigh the size of a mountain; it doesn’t even come close to that. Also, you would expect such a machine to be appropriate for experts with many years of sewing experience, but surprisingly, the Singer 4423 is the darling of newbies. 

Though specifically built for heavy materials, you can conveniently use it to sew light and medium weight fabrics. For all the efficiency and durability it packs, it’s incredible that this machine is a great bargain for the price it’s sold brand new (we resist to say “cheap”).

Stitches And Buttonhole

There are 23 standard in-built stitches. While the number of stitches in the Singer 4423 may appear one too many for a beginner, in practice, they are all useful for sewing materials used in everyday life activities.

These beautiful stitches are 6 basic stitches, 12 decorative stitches, 4 stretch stitches and one buttonhole stitch. Furthermore, there’s an automatic one-step buttonhole feature in the Singer 4423, which enables you to produce professional buttonholes on your fabrics in one touch. 

Design

From a distance, the Singer 4423 sewing machine looks unwelcoming, all thanks to its grey body colour. But on close interaction, you’ll find out that it’s a user-friendly machine with easy-to-reach and a flexible control mechanism. 

A mechanically operated device, the 4423 gives you optimum control over it. More so, repairing or replacing any of its faulty parts in the future will be hassles-free unlike in complex computerised machines. As earlier noted, the interior of the Singer 4423 is metallic which lends the machine the strength to handle difficult sewing tasks.

Apart from the stainless steel bedplate, a majority of the machine’s exterior is made of plastic. That attributes to the light body weight of a mere 6.58kg; you only need to pick it up once and it will meekly follow you. 

There are two spool pins on the Singer 4423: the horizontal and vertical spool pins. The two pins can be used at the same time when you want to carry out twin needle stitching. 

Before you insert your thread on the horizontal spool pin, ensure that the wounding of the thread is the crisscrossed type, such that it appears like multiple X arrangements. Then, let the spool cover swallow the rest of the pin so that there would be no space in between. That way, the thread comes off smoothly as it unravels. 

In all, there are five dials on the Singer 4423: 

  • the stitch dial, where all the stitches are displayed; 
  • the stitch selection dial, which can be turned to pick any stitch of your choice;
  • the stitch length dial, to adjust the length of the stitch depending on the fabric you want to sew;
  • the stitch width dial, to adjust the width of the stitch selected, and
  • the top thread tension dial, to fine-tune the tautness of your thread.

Bobbin

The Singer Heavy Duty 4423 features a drop-in bobbin, specifically plastic in class 15 or class 15j, which is less problematic for the metallic bobbin case. The bobbin can be speedily threaded with the aid of the automatic bobbin threader located on top of the machine.

The positioning of the bobbin pit on the surface of the machine and the transparent bobbin cover facilitate the rethreading or replacement of the bobbin thread before it completely runs out on you.

Top Threading

Drawn boldly on the 4423 is a numbered threading path which directs you on how to thread accordingly, up to the point of the needle. A beginner would find the path simple to follow. At the level of the needle, there’s an automatic needle threader which threads easily when you lower the presser foot and turn the needle to the top position. 

Motor

Since Singer indicated that the 4423’s motor is 60% more powerful than a standard machine’s, we estimated the Watts at 160W. With that, a smooth sail over thick fabrics is guaranteed and at 1,100 stitches per minute speed. Not only do you enjoy the velvety speed, but you also save quality time sewing. One thing though: don’t expect a low sound from this machine.

Presser Feet

The sewing machine comes with the all-purpose, zipper, button sewing, and buttonhole snap on feet that are very flexible to change.

The presence of an extra-high presser foot lifter ensures that no fabric, regardless of the thickness, will be too dense to fit under the presser foot. With the adjustable presser foot pressure control, you can increase or decrease the pressure your presser foot applies on your fabric.

Free Arm

The flatbed of the Singer 4423 can be unfastened to the right to reveal the free arm or cylindrical bed for the sewing and hemming of cuffs, collars, sleeves, and other hard-to-reach parts of the fabric. The detached flatbed doubles as an accessory box for storing your machine’s accessories.

Freehand Embroidering

You can drop the feed dog system of the 4423 to create lovely embroidery designs  with both hands guiding your fabrics, instead of one.

Reverse Lever

Make reverse stitches to tighten the ends of your fabrics by holding down the reverse lever on the Singer 4423. 

Foot Pedal

There are no special speed controls on the Singer 4423 sewing machine. Consequently, a foot pedal is the only accessory used to regulate the machine’s speed. The pedal is easily excited, so your foot would have to go gently on it.

Lighting 

To provide light for your sewing work area, the manufacturers fixed a non-removable LED bulb in the machine. The light it produces is brilliant, making it convenient for you to see dark fabrics clearly.

Versatility

Obviously, the Singer 4423 machine is capable of handling light, medium, and heavy materials. With the correct tension settings and right needles, you’re good to hem, sew, alter, or repair professionally.

Final Words

Even though you mightn’t get the rock-like heaviness you imagine for a heavy-duty machine from the Singer Heavy Duty 4423 Sewing Machine, you’ll be thrilled with the way heavy fabrics like fleece, denim, and leather melt underneath it.

Care must be taken while sewing heavier materials like canvas and queen-size quilt on the machine; it’s not ideal to subject the 4423 to regular and extensive work on very thick fabrics. Doing so damages the machine quickly.

At optimum speed, it’s expected that the machine will be jiggly. For that, a strong sewing table or a rubber mat will cushion the effect.
