    Miriam, thank you so much for gathering all these valuable links in one place. Your collection here is a treasure trove and greatly appreciated! I've bookmarked this thread, saved it as a favorite, and then saved in my own files just so i know where to find it again!

    Cleaning and repairing the shellac clear coat on vintage sewing mcahines
    I am adding this link so that you can see what do do in the worst case. When the sewing machine finish is not all it should be, Glenn's method works great. My husband tried this and we had excellent results in a very short time. Thank you Glenn.

    You don't have to book mark this, it is already at the top of the page for For Vintage & Antique Machine Enthusiasts.

    Thanks so much for bring ing this back up. I just bought a Vintage machine and it didn't have a manual with it. This helps a lot.
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    What's the best way to clean and shine the irons on a treadle sewing machine? Will I be sanding and painting or just cleaning?
