    Wow! Please do let us know how it goes. I would love to have my machines serviced at my home. What a concept.

    The very good looking doctor was here and the news isn't good Babylock Ellegante, he couldn't find any reason for her to be so locked up, he thinks she needs to see a specialist. She is going to the dealer tomorrow. They said it would 3 to 6 weeks But he did also service my workhorse Juki and showed me a couple of additional places to oil her. He was amazed at how clean my machines are and suggested that I keep a can of WD40 to use if anything starts to tighten up and also make it part of my weekly cleaning. He felt terrible that he couldn't fix Elle so he only charged me $50.00. Did I mention that he was very good looking? May have to have the doctor make regular visits, just to keep the girls feeling their best.

    Please don't use WD40, it is not a good option for lubricating sewing machines. It leaves a residue that attacks dust and lint and will become gummy and cause more issues.

    I am glad one of your machines is up and running! But I have always been told to never use WD-40 on a sewing machine. I was told to only use regular sewing machine oil like Singer or Tri-flo. Please get a second opinion before putting WD-40 on your machine.

    I hate the thought of taking my machines to the doctor. Especially my 306K. That thing weighs 25lbs!!
    And I never use WD40 on my machines. Just the products that are for sewing machhines.
