    Congrats fellow NH quilter and Featherweight owner! If you cant' find Singer oil, ask around at the local quilt shops what they carry (Nashua Sew 'n Vac, The Bunkhouse, etc.) as they may have an idea. Also, Singer.com may sell directly. You can also "date" your machine through Singer. They will tell you date it was manufactured and where. Do you belong to a local guild? Just curious. I will be a member of Bedford Friends next year.

    I found some in the notions section at my fabric shop. (Hancock's Fabric) Make sure you get the tube for motor lubricant and don't use the oil which is clear and in a bottle with a dispenser.

    I have three Singer Featherweight machines, the oldest dating from 1934. They require regular lubrication. You can find a diagram on the internet as to where to oil your machine. It requires that the bottom be taken off to reach some of the spots. With regular maintenance all of mine run like a dream and I use them a lot to sew. The original owners of two of them were each of my husband's grandmothers and the third one I found at a resale shop buried under other stuff in a back corner. Was I ever excited over that and it is the 1934 one.

    I had ordered mine on line thru Ebay, then found the oil (which I knew they had) and the lubricant (didn't know they had) at Hancocks, live and learn. Can't remember whether they have the bobbins tho, bought lots of them on Ebay, look thru that section because some sell high compared to others.
