Miriam and Phil you did a great job putting all this together. It came out better than my tutorial.

Now I have to try it on my own on some old piece of junk around here... Phil does have a way with words. It took some photo searching to find the right pictures to go along with what he wrote. Phil watched and listened to Glenn and took copious amounts of notes as he worked. I just shot pictures. I'm thinking Pat made supper for us all - she does that very well.

I think the hard part for me is getting the rag with the finger in the right chemicals and not making a sticky mess.
One of the big factors is you don't want to work too long on one spot at one time you want to move on and go back over it. Nothing gets done instantly. Then it is nice to know when to quit. You can always go back over it later. This is something you will learn by doing.

We probably should have called it First Aid For Sewing Machine Finish.

Thanks Miriam and Glenn for the tutorial. Is this going to be stickied with the rest of them? I think it should be.

It could be stickied but I don't know how - a sticky note would make it easier to find. I only get photo credits. It is Glenn's procedure and Glenn did all the grunt work. My husband, Phil was our ghost writer. I only wish we could have flown Muv over so she could narrate a video. But this was a very low budget operation.... Oh and I bet we would have just sat around in the back yard drinking tea and eating scones... maybe turning a few hand cranks. While this machine was ugly enough to use a sledge hammer on we were able to make it look good and make it sew. It has by no means been brought back to original beautiful cosmetic condition. It has been brought back to a quality stitch unrivaled for the price anywhere if you were to buy it new. With TLC this machine should last another generation or so. One cool thing is you can still buy parts, bobbins, and needles. You can make this one go with electric or people power it with a hand crank or by a treadle.
