    We did have a good time with Glenn and Pat. I have the redeye we started done except for the bobbin area and I need to get another couple dremmel tool bits and finish off the plates. I screwed up the French polishing a bit today after I painted with the wrong color black touch up paint but I worked it out eventually - Glenn you should be proud of me. We had DGKs hanging around. They now would prefer to clean and oil old sewing machines to eating and making mudpies. Mercy sewed a couple dresses for her doll today. I'm very excited. The machine with the spinner knob gave her the confidence she needed! Wilbur loves to work the Chinese hand crank - he thinks it is too noisy - it is - we had to oil it - it still squeaks - cheap Chinese junk....

    I think I got flat black somehow. It does help though.
    That Wilbur thought that VS machine with the missing slide plate was REALLY KOOL . He even ate most of his peas so he could oil it.

    It's good to know that bribery still works.

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    Miriam,

    Take the gear cover plate off the Chinese HC. Clean it good then grease it with Tri-Flow grease. Oil the shafts with T-F too then USE it. Mine was like you describe, noisy and coarse feeling. But after the grease and oil it is smoothing out and quieting down.
