"Husqvarna invents life-long lubricating
The 6030 was the first sewing machine to be manufactured with sintered steel bearings which were porous and could retain oil. Operation of the machine forces the lubricant onto the upper and lower shafts. When the machine is idle the lubricant is then reabsorbed into the bearing.
For that reason they were the first of the 6000 series to be manufactured without oiling holes. That simply meant that an owner wasn't obligated to oil the machine regularly. It did require an annual service that included fresh lubricant, however.
This is a very well cared for machine with a virtually complete set of accessories. It has been fully serviced!
Comes with every available stitch programmer!
Everything fits neatly inside the original carrying case!
It comes with..........
Twelve stitch programmers (A~old styleB~new style B~old style C~new style C~D~E~F~G~H~I~J) for a total of forty eight stitches
buttonholer and ten buttonhole cams
twelve bobbins (6 plastic and 6 metal)
The accessory feet included are
Clear B decorative utility and decorative stitch foot
Roller presser foot
Raised seam foot w/cord guide
Teflon Blind hem foot
Two invisible zipper feet
Thumb screw (not pictured)
Package of ten Schmetz universal needles
Simple uncluttered controls are color coordinated.
The bobbin winder disengages the main drive and the white knob pulls out to engage the lower gear function. Low gear is perfect for when you need a slower speed but still need full power.
The free arm is great for sleeves and hemming pants pants/jeans. Adjusting the pressure of the presser foot is simple. Increase pressure by turning clockwise. Turn all the way counterclockwise to darn, embroider or free hand quilt.
This machine is great for precision tailoring and tough enough for eight layers of denim or two layers of belt leather. A double needle creates beautiful decorative stitches. This machine handles delicate metallic threads like a pro.
Here's just a sampling of the decorative and utility stitches made with this machine!
All three mechanisms were removed and cleaned. The buttonhole mechanism was replaced with one from a newer model machine.
The camstack and take up slide bearing were inspected and found to be in excellent shape. The camstack is a newer version OEM and was replaced 18 months ago. The newer camstacks are more resilient and less prone to cracking.
All of the adjustments were made according to Viking technical specifications. The motor, wiring and foot control were all cleaned and inspected for safety and performance.
The self oiling feature of the sintered bearings that was unjustly blamed for the mechanisms freezing or getting stuck; but it had nothing to do with the bearings which only lubricated the upper and lower shaft. The grease used on the gears and moving parts of the mechanisms was the culprit.
There are a few paint chips on the free arm and throat as well as a paint chip on the bottom edge of the face plate. The base has a few minor chips and the case has some pitting on the latch handles. The box for the buttonholer has been taped up.

Here's a sample of the point-de-paris hemstitch. The tri-motion three step zigzag stitch is perfect for elastic.
The button reed helps ease the presser foot over bulky seams. Performs beautifully on delicate fabrics.

A little note about packaging....................................
The machine will be well packed for delivery to your home. It will be bubble wrapped and placed in a sturdy box with at least 3" of peanuts or equivalent type of padding on all sides. All of the contents will be padded and stabilized. I try to package well enough to withstand at least a 6' drop.
