    I think I have at least 11 machines that could use a serious facelift. They have good bones but bad complexions. They won't any get done today - anybody else get rained out? I'm not allowed to do any thing like this in the house or garage or shop - OUT DOORS - orders from DH.

    Is raw linseed oil better or is boiled linseed oil best? DH says boiled is best - the raw doesn't dry - just making sure...

    Great tutorial, will definitely have to try this!

    (Starting in an inconspicuous area, of course; most of my machines aren't Singers, and not all finishes/decals are created equal!)

    Pat,

    Bring over a machine and I'll furnish the rags and liquid supplies.
    Instead of a TOGA it will be a QBSP. (You figure it out. )

    Great guess!
    But no! However, I may use this one.
    Try again. Think!
