    I have an aversion to know-it-all people! Good for you sticking to your guns!

    I bought a tube of Singer Lube not long ago, it's a heavy grease shaped into a tube that you push into the round hole for the motor.

    I agree, aren't you glad you know enough not to have him touch one of your machines.

    Good for you Charlee!! Oh man....I'm soo glad he's not near me because I wouldn't have know the difference. I'm not all that knowledgable about the mechanics of my machines :oops:

    Good for you Charlee, Sorry to say lots of repairmen don't know what they are doing, we've had a furnace repairman tell me because I was able to get the furnace to come on, I had wiped the problem out of the computer and he couldn't tell what was wrong with it. He still charged me $90.00 for the service call, didn't even know how to get the door back on it. You can bet he won't be called again. Had a bad experience with an authorized Juki sewing machine dealer also.

    Boy, you have to be careful, don't you? I just got a beautiful Singer treadle at an auction for $15.00!!! Now I need to find someone to carry up to my sewing room! Wish Billy lived closer so I could have him look at it!! They also had a white treadle, but the cabinet and machine were so beat up that no one even bid on it. Will post pix later.

    Bless you taking your machine from this nut.
    I ask a so called certified Pfaff dealer just to look at one thread tension on my machine. I told him NOT to do any repairs.
    The idiot said no problem. He BROKE my machine. It cost me over $800 to get what he did repaired. Another Pfaff dealer that knew what he was doing. Now I tell every person I see don't let "Sewing in the Carolinas' touch your machine.
    My friend went there they sold her a broke machine.
    They would not take the machine back. Thank goodness she had paid by credit card. This was before we new each other.

    I've certainly had my share of so called repairmen who supposedly knew their stuff. There is a certain dealership in Wichita FAlls TX that I refuse to darken their door for this very reason. Instead, I will drive the extra distance to Denton Sewing Center where they know what they're doing.

    Charlee -- hopefully that was someone in Redmond and not Bend, right???????

    My mother had a Singer.....the repairman was an idiot (I think he's dead now, so it's not the same guy). Mom couldn't sew more than 5 stitches before the thread would break. FINALLY, after 10-15 times taking it to the shop, after a new repairman came to town, the new one discovered a piece of sharp metal down in the machine where the needle goes in. I'm sorry to see repairmen haven't improved any over the years!!!!
