    Don't forget to oil the treadle works also. Light oil anywhere you have movement.

    What a pretty machine! I have a 1918 66-1 in the same No. 2 style cabinet. Mine had the same hazy finish on the bed (and got named Hazel!). I just used sewing machine oil to clean it, like macbaby said, and it looks great.

    This is going to be a pretty machine. Please post a picture when she's done with her spa treatment.

    My 1918 Redeye is a back clamp. My slightly newer one isn't.

    Hazel is also a Redeye and still a back clamp. When was yours authorized? Mine is the February 6, 1918 order of 50,000 machines, the second of 4 runs for 200000 total 66s that year.
