    I agreed. I do add one drop of machine oil to the paint brush as I think it helps to grab the lint. I also clean after each bobbin change.

    I use a small brush too. Where do you find the small vacuum attatchments? I've looked but can't seem to find them.

    I use a pipe cleaner. It can reach way down in the bottom and grabs the lint really well. It's also bendable so it can get around things the brush can't get to.

    The repairman said never used canned air.

    I use a clean unused paint brush - sounds like a little drop of machine oil is a good idea also. It is surprising how much lint is depostited in the bobbin case - I use the brush every time I change bobbins.

    I use a small paint brush. I was once told from a machine knitter (they have lots of lint problems, too) to use a nylon brush because it will attract more lint because of static. I also clean the bobbin case with a Q-tip with a drop of oil to finish the job.

    Here's a link to the kind I have. Mine came with my Oreck, these are exactly the same as mine.

    I use a very fine paintbrush - but with a looonnngg handle - since I dropped the small short brush which came with the machine down into the works!
