Some disassembly required
A quilting friend of mine brought me a machine that she got for $7.00 at Savers Mart. She wondered if I could find a home for it. The first thing I did was disassemble everything that could be cleaned. I copiously oiled everything, delinted the whole bobbin area, removed dust bunny families from the needle bar area inside, etc. Then I polished all the metal pieces. The belt needs replacing and now all that remains is to clean the oxidized surface, assemble and test the stitching. I hope it gets claimed for a sewing home. I have enormous fun doing this- getting cruddy metal back into humming as a wonderful precision machine!
