    Thanks. It is a 15-30 from 1896. I think it would look great in 'Ferrari Red'.

    Can anyone tell me what these are? They are only about 1.5 inches or so long. I'm guessing they were a sewing kit at one time but now are missing the caps that held in the needles. Name:  spools.jpg

    No Miriam's driving is just fine. We did have a car full at the end of the day Pat told me you sold it to lady with girls. It was a nice looking machine.

    Agree sewing kit. Store the needles and a safty pin inside. The cap is a thimble. I have one I have been carrying since 1963.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    Hey everyone!!! It's been forever since I've been in,but here I am now and I have a question. I've got a knocking sound that has recently developed in one of my FW 221 Centennials. I'm assuming I need to grease it. Recommendations? I've googled it and tried to find grease/lube at JoAnns and struck out on both counts. Thanks!!

    Now you are going to make me look at my two MWs to see if t hey have any printing on the bottom. Both of mine are excellent sewers, as I'm sure the one at SA is, but I don't need it.

    Regular sewing machine oil for the machine itself...I don't remember what the motor takes! Welcome home!

    First, clean it good. Especially around the bobbin and hook area. Pull the needle plate off and clean under it. Then after it's all clean, oil everything except the gears under the spool pin plate. Grease those. Then using Singer lube only grease the motor.
    You can get all the oil and grease you need at Sew-Classic { http://www.shop.sew-classic.com/ }.
    I recommend Tri-Flow oil and grease for the machine, and Singer lube (the grease) for the motor.

    One of our first rescue and repair machines was a Dial 'n Sew. A simple ZZ machine made in Japan. It's always been sooooo quiet it's a pleasure to use. I was happily sewing along piecing some squares when just all of a sudden it started clunking. I stopped, looked at it, put in a new square, sewed it ..... clunk clunk clunk ...... WHAT THE Hxxxx????? So I started looking, touching, oiling and gradually eliminating things. I knew it had to be in the hook drive somewhere.
    Finally I took the hook and bobbin out and it was quiet again. Hmmmmmmmmmmm ??????? It wasn't that dirty. But I did clean it and oil it and put it back together. All quiet again.

    Some machines are just more touchier than others I guess.
