Hope this helps!
When I took my guide class, I asked about how much to use and she said "a couple drops" so that's what I've been using.

Also you should oil the Race when changing bobbins.

The race is in the bobbin area.

It will be quieter and smoother.

This is what I do and works for me and my Juki TL98 QE.

I need to figure out exactly where to put the oil in the bobbin area, the picture in the book isn’t super clear

Congrats. You now own one of the most solid, reliable, easy-to-operate machines on the market today. Oil her and take care of her and she will reward you with years of service. I've had my 2010Q for 3+ years--worked her hard--and never had a moment's trouble. The stitching on these machines is great for piecing and the extension table will help you with FMQ.

I just very recently, like 2 weeks ago, purchased the Juki TL2010Q and am pleasantly surprised with it! It just proves to me once again you really do get what you pay for because I tried last year to get away with buying cheaper machines and that's just exactly what I got! Hate both of them! But I think me and Miss Juki are gonna become friends real quick!!! Still learning about her but from what I've experienced so far - think we're gonna be besties for a long time to come! Ah, with proper maintenance of course!

My juki sets in the bed with oil so I don’t oil extra. Just make sure wick is down and keep an eye on oil level. Man does it ever sew fast. Best make sure your fingers are not in the way. Big harp space nice table that mine came in. Just waiting to get into my new studio to start using it

I also just purchased the Juki2010Q and I love it. I have seven other machines (mostly Viking Huskvarna) and find the Juki much easier to use and faster. The only complaint I have is that it could use more light Of course it could be my old eyes but I purchased a clip on light and it compensates well. Enjoy yours. I sure am enjoying mine.

My Juki2010 is still my favorite, even with the electronics no longer functioning correctly. Very glad I learned how to disable them so the machine would still work. Though I miss the thread cutter, I think I like it better with pedal control of needle position. It's actually very easy to stop it needle up or down with just the foot pedal, and I really don't miss the occasional extra stitch it would make so it could stop with the needle down every time.

Macy, I can't get my needle threader to work. It's really a pain. I now just thread it the old-fashioned way.
I watched every Youtube video and I had success maybe once or twice!
