I am adding this link so that you can see what do do in the worst case. When the sewing machine finish is not all it should be, Glenn's method works great. My husband tried this and we had excellent results in a very short time. Thank you Glenn.

You don't have to book mark this, it is already at the top of the page for For Vintage & Antique Machine Enthusiasts.

What a great resource! I hope to pick up a machine this weekend that is in rough shape, and this info will be a big help. Thank you!

Thanks so much for bring ing this back up. I just bought a Vintage machine and it didn't have a manual with it. This helps a lot.

What's the best way to clean and shine the irons on a treadle sewing machine? Will I be sanding and painting or just cleaning?
