    That brings back memories of all the controversy about how to care for wood furniture; leather too! :-D

    Linda, yes and woodworkers are still up in arms over this. It is funny at that. I had a lady bring me a table to restore. She tried to do it herself the problem was that a famous woodworker told he to strip the piece and then feed the wood linseed oil. She came to me saying that the wood would not take a stain nor would shellac stick to the wood. It took me three days to strip the oil so I could refinish the thing. Glenn

    Charlee; The answer now is yes. Didn't realize I was missing the stitch length selector screw for her. I do have another 15 which I'm considering using that screw for this 15 but still need the screw. If your offer is still good, I'd like that screw. Thanks so much for your offer. Picked up LindaR's attachments so will maybe fork over some feet to SIL because I have more coming.
    Let me dig the machine out of the closet and check the condition of that part...I'll get back to you soon! :)

    Nanasmom: Is the Mother's chrome polish found at big box stores, like WM or Lowes or at an automotive supply store?

    It may be Mother's Mag chrome polish amd it might be found at WM or KMart but also at automotive stores. I just smile sweetly when they ask why I want that and say to polish my sewing machine of course. Speechless, every time.:mrgreen:
    Thanks! Your comment to them is toooo funny! :)

    I have cleaned this singer 500, I swear it had sand dumped in it. It was hard to turn the dials on the front. It is clean now but I can not get the calm to go back in. It pops out and will not stay in. I set the front dial to B and the back dial to L and special, itís the #1 cam. The dials trun much better.I took the motor out cleaned the sand off and greased the worm gear. I donít know what else to do.
    Thanks
