I still have a lot to do. I didn't even look at the tension or the stitch knob thingy. The black disks on the top turn but they don't make it zig or zag. I'm thinking about using a bit of heat from the hair dryer to see if it will move. I'm reluctant to use any penetrating oil because everything is painted. I didn't take an old tooth brush along so couldn't scrub corners very well. The stitch length doesn't seem to budge. The motor will be torn down and cleaned. Then DH promises to rewire the whole mess. At least the cabinet is pretty...
DH is ok but sore from the wasp bite.

She does have a nice body. No nicks or big scratches. I hope I don't inflict any on her.

You did a really nice job!!!!! Pretty machine.
I use silver cleaner on my badges and they shine up really nicely.

Are you sure thats's a 206 x 13 needle, Miriam? Your photo is a bit blurry, but it may not be. Lots of people stuck regular needles in these. Check your bobbin case. If it's all nicked up, chances are that's not the correct needle. Or at least it's really dull probably needs replacing anyway. I order mine online.

I have no idea if it is the correct needle. I saved it anyway. I wish I knew where I put the bobbin case. DUH. I know it had one. I should probably buy a life time supply of the needles right now I think I'll wait to see if the zig zag thing ever moves...

Very NICE! You did an excellent job cleaning. You should put this in a treadle.

I might have to if DH doesn't have time to do the wiring. I just have to have a frame/table - I have an empty treadle base. I guess I could just hold a flash light up while I treadle away. Did you notice the belt on the inside??? It had a motor and a belt outside then the other belt inside. Very curious machine. The wonders of how zig zag evolved...
