I recently bought a refurbished 1934 Singer 15-91, which I have been using for FMQ. I LOVE this machine. My question is: do you oil your machines, and if so, with what, and where, and how often? Thanks for any help you can give me.

Yes, oil your machine. The instruction manual should tell you all the details of how, when, where to oil. The manual will say to only use Singer brand oil, but lately I've been using Tri-Flow, because it was recommended by folks with way more experience and know-how than me.

If you don't have a manual, chances are you should be able to find one online, possibly free, even. Just do a google search to find it.

You need to oil frequently with sewing machine oil. Basically you need to oil all moving parts. It helps a lot to have a manual that shows you the oiling points on your machine.
