    I am so glad I just read your message! I did not know that I should not leave my home email address on the board. I just did it for a couple of replies before I read yours. I never thought about it. I do hope that the admin. deletes it. Thanks

    Your machine looks exactly like the one my mom gave me in the 70's. It made the best straight stitches ever. Wish I would have kept it.

    As far as cleaning it. Try an air compresser on it first. Cleaner next, but never water. Have fun with it. :thumbup:

    What a cool old machine. And it still works? Those old Singers are amazing. No help with the cleaning.

    I did not take the time to read through this entire post but wanted to respond really quickly (I am pooped and ready for bed). I own a old Singer featherweight and I took a class on cleaning, repairing, maintenance, etc when I bought it. We cleaned our machines with Murphy's Oil Soap and a soft cloth. Then polish it gently with layers of Macquires Car Wax. I know it sounds crazy---but it works!!
