    I finally looked at the manual for the 411g - now to set it up to do chain stitching!!!!!! I also have a 401g on a treadle. That manual is made with no words. Take a look even if you don't have one - very interesting find. I would assume it is only pictures so the 411G could be put on a treadle & sent to countries where they don't read English or German.

    I do believe this is the best way to clean up the old machines - no point in giving them any harsh treatment with hammers or torches.

    Fav & Muv have made fantastic videos about old sewing machines. You most likely will so not have a sewing machine exactly like the machines in the videos, however, the cleaning principles will apply to just about any vintage sewing machine without a lot of dis-assembly. Be sure to pour yourself a nice cup of tea to enjoy while you watch these videos.

    I think these videos need to be bumped to the top again so people can find and enjoy them.

    I agree with you Miriam. To whom do we make the suggestion?

    Thank you. I haven't been able to do that either since we got this new format.

    Thanks for the links. I'm sure I will need it some time down the road. Now that I have been able to finally bookmark this for later.
