    There's nothing better to learn on than a machine that you can't hurt by making a mistake! S'all good, and live and let live kinda thing, cuz I seriously doubt that I'm going to change your mind, anymore than you could change mine!
    Well then, I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree, at least about the parting out part.

    steel wool works good for rust on chrome parts, that's what my son uses on antique cars and some of my sewing machines.

    Sadly true in some cases, but for the most part I buy new parts when I can. I don't steal parts I can buy new off of other perfectly good machines. And if I buy used parts I have no way of knowing if the machine was repairable, or a total loss. And I don't ask cos if I find out it's repairable I'm likely to buy the whole thing and refurb it back to life. Did that to the 66-? head I traded away recently. Sewed too good to part it out.
