    I saw that machine too. It is lovely. Hand crank is that it is powered by hand with the handle on the right. Sort of like the old ice cream making machines.

    WalMart and most stores that carry Old English and other cleanning supplies for dusting and furniture, usually carry Scotts Liquid Gold. ?White Gasoline is not the same as Kerosene. Kerosene at one time was used in oil lamps, and like someone else said, you could get it at a service station (gas station), but that was years ago. It is much safer to use than gasoline, but be sure you aren't inside where there might be a pilot light burning or any other flames, because it is flameable. The fumes from it should cause you to use it where there is plenty of ventilation

    You see the crank mechanism on the hand wheel? That is a hand crank, you have to crank it by hand to make it sew.

    Oh and speaking of hand cranks if you in the San Fransisco area hop on CL and look at the one for $45

    Rent the movie or BBC series House of Elliott. In one of the episodes has the maid using a handcrank machine for several minutes. She must have practiced because she looks pretty efficient in her use of it. I guess it was quite a boost from hand sewing in its day. I have 2 handcranks. But look at Deara's on page 71 I think. Both of you have exquisitely beautiful handcranks.

    PS: you sew with your left hand and 'crank' with your right. I think I like treadles to sew with over a handcrank!
