    Welcome to the board. It sure looks like you found the right place. Almost all of us like to tinker with these great old machines

    Found this picture of another richmond. This is exactly what ours looks like decals and all. The word Richmond is worn off on ours but if I squint I can see where it used to be.

You could see the same machine with the Macy's name on it for an example. It sounds like it was sold to, and then by, a department store that put a name on it to their liking. Not exactly the same but very similar to my Windsor B. sold by Montgomery Wards.

    Yes I believe you are Right. It is badged Charles William Store New York City. With a little research it would seem the Charles William Store was a mail order catalog from the 1890's to as late as the 1930's, maybe later that is just the latest date I have seen. Upon further exploration these richmonds from the Charles William Stores were made as early as the 1890's. Really wish I could find out when this one was made.

    Yes, regular sewing machine oil. Is the rust on the plated parts or painted parts?

    It is on the silver parts, and on the silver part of the hand wheel. It may be on the painted too, but I think the painted parts are just dirty.

    I would use Sewing Machine oil on the painted parts to begin with. Makeup pads are good to wipe with. The plated parts are more than likely Nickel plated. A metal polish that is safe for Nickel is what I would use to start with. I use a "Wadding Polish" made by Eagle One on my machines. I get it at an auto parts store for about $7.
    Post a picture when you are done. I would love to see it.

    Thanks. I will be sure to. Don't know when it will be though. My mom will want to help do it and she works. I am at home all day at the moment, and could work on it as much as I want. Just have to wait and see. Can't wait to get it looking nice again. It was my Great Grandmothers machine, Possibly handed down to her from her mother. Lots of family history in it.

    Hello, my DH said your machine was probably made by Eldridge. They made machines for other companies. We have two and they look just like yours.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.
