    Cathy, Miriam,

    Yes as far as I'm concerned "Tri-Flowing" is a word. I just added it to my hard drive memory LOL.

    When I cleaned this machine I did pull the hook and bobbin carrier out. I had to it was a mess. Almost as much old solidified oil as the 127. I did lube it as well. But I just had one of those ..... kinda - sorta - maybe memories. Somewhere I saw some rust and even though it was cleaned off it might be the cause "IF" it was in the bobbin hook areas. I'll double check it and do some more Tri-Flowing.

    That brain fog is what happens when you are cleaning a machine... ask me how I know.

    We have LOTS of snow - drifts as high as my waist - Indianapolis has been shut down pretty much.

    The main roads get plowed - our side streets all wait until it melts off - and they don't discriminate... This is life in the big city, Joe.

    Yepper ..... Life in the big city. Same thing here. Once in a blue moon they'll plow and salt the residential streets. Not often.
    That's is why I have a 4x4. Yeah, more than once I've needed it just to get in and out of my own drive way. Eeeee gads.

    Main streets are over salted. Vehicles rust out like mad. Residential streets once in a rare time.

    I found the noise in my 15-91. When the thread take up lever begins it's up sweep it makes that dry schuck sound. I've oiled the grove the little roller on the lever follows and the little wheel thoroughly. I wiggled it until I was sure the little roller is rolling freely.

    So, I guess this machine is gonna make noise until it decides to stop. At least I know where it's coming from.
