Thanks Muv. Will keep this in mind when I get down to sewing with it. Will keep you posted.

I keep a small spool of thread, a bobbin of other thread (I can always transfer it to the one with the machine) a scrap of fabric, new machine needles, and a tiny pair of scissors in my purse, just in case... I come across a vintage machine I want to try out. I did that with the last Singer 99 I bought, much to the amusement of the clerks in the store. It let me know just what I was getting.
That little oil can with your machine is so cute, a real keeper!! ")

Yes, the oil can is so cute, I was so tickled by it actually that my son was a little embarassed about me fawning all over this little vintage oil can! :D I love embarrassing my son because the look on his face is just so funny. He's 17 but hey it's just a number and he will always be my little boy. Heaven forbids he reads this post! :D :D
