    What a job to take on, but saying that, Good for you! I love our old machines and wish they could tell us their stories!

    Update On The Cleaning Process

    I am slowly working on Hannah Hand Crank. The bobbin assembly is soaking in kerosene with the faceplate and bobbin plates. I am going to have the bobbin plates replated. Every other day or so I will do a little more gentle cleaning on the decals with Goop and a wipe of kerosene. When I began some of the decals were invisible, now I am seeing gold.

    After massaging with the Goop, I wipe it with kerosene.

    jaciqltznok,
    I looked all over our town/s, couldn't find it anywhere. Dh and I went to some antique stores over the weekend and each one of them carried all the Maas products (quiet testimonial for the product, don't you think?)

    best,

    My best is the least I can do.
