You might want to take out the scissors and place a little sewing machine oil on the screws and such to help slow down on the rusting going on. Don't want it to spread.

Thanks for reminding me, kt53sews - I had thought about that (it has been in storage for three years) but had forgotten to do so!!

I bought a small sewing table at an auction several years ago. It came from England and it was just like someone had left it with thread, needles,pins,emery,buttons and other odds and ends in it. A pincushion in the lid. I couldn't discard anything. I use it to set my VCR on. My daughter has put it on her list of things she wants.
