The Pfaff 1473 was made in Germany during the time when all the parts were produced in the Pfaff factory. (no outsourcing). The hook was produced using a process referred to as a “lost wax mold”, producing the most precise and perfect hook design in the industry. Pfaff machines were born from the industrial sewing machine division, and features such as the high speed industrial rotary hook and the built in DUAL FEED (IDT) system were direct results of this partnership of household and industrial divisions of the same company. Pfaff has a proud history of innovation, quality and longevity, and this machine is no exception, and is truly worthy of the Pfaff name and reputation.
The Pfaff 1473 has a built in needle threader and a free arm. the swing away extension table removes to reveal the free arm for pant legs, cuffs and small areas.

About our Refurbished Pfaff machines:
Brubaker’s Sewing Center has been a Pfaff Dealer since 1952. In the year 2000, Pfaff was sold to the SVP Group (Husqvarna Viking and Singer). When we learned that the new owners were closing the German factory we had the foresight to buy as many german parts, circuit boards and components that we could get our hands on. As a result, we have a great supply of parts and components to service and restore our beloved German Pfaff machines. It is because of this that we can offer these machines with a full, 1 year warranty.
Additionally, these machines have been completely rebuilt/refurbished to “as new” or “one off” factory condition. The prices will vary solely on cosmetic condition. All are perfect running, finely tuned as they would be if you had purchased the machine new. While there are risks associated with purchasing a used sewing machine, we try to alleviate that risk by offering you this warranty, and know that these machines, while used, are still much better in quality than any new sewing machine produced today. If you are a serious sewer or quilter, a German Pfaff will give you years of trouble-free sewing.
