    I am thrilled for you! :thumbup: Yea, keep oiling it and sewing with it and after a while it will be good as new. I am having fun with my mom's machine. In fact I think I will take it to my sewing studio in the basement so I can use it there, and bring up my old treadle so I can use it upstairs if the power fails. I have some other old ones I need to get out and lube up again.
