    I have a new 'baby'. I think her name will be LUCY

    Thanks to BoJangles I found out that "Lucy' was born on August 15, 1940.

    SHe is in fairly good shape but I have a few? for you all please:
    (1) how do I remove/replace the worn out partially rubbed off decals?
    (2) should I repaint the worn off edges?
    (3) if so what kind of black paint do I use on her?
    (4) OR should I just rub her down, shine her up and use her the way she is?

    If the last one is the suggestion what do I shine her up with?

    Laquita, congrats on your new baby Lucy, I'm sure someone will help you on your questions or you could do a search on cleaning antique machines in the search box?

    I had one in that condition - Glenn's tutorial made that baby look pretty darn good. Cleaning and repairing the shellac clear coat on vintage sewing mcahines
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
    good mothers let you lick the beaters - great mothers turn it off first
