    I don't think you can PM an attachment. If you will PM me your email address, I'll send you a copy. I don't remember where I found it.

    (Just click on my name at the top of this post and the link to PM me should show up.)

    It looks like it contains common fixes, but is only 12 short pages.

    and some more oil... and a little more oil... and maybe oil it again... perhaps.

    Of all the machines I've brought back to sewing it was a 130 that took the cake when it came to oil consumption. So don't be discouraged, just oil it again. It will smooth out. It just takes time and use for the oil to creep into those crazy tight tolerances that have been neglected. =)

    I'm going through this with a Japanese 3/4 size long shuttle zigzagger. It wasn't frozen, just felt a little stiff in one part of the cycle. I've oiled the bejeesus out of it every other day for two weeks and while it's better, I still feel a little hesitation in one spot. I don't know, maybe that's how it's supposed to be? This is the first long shuttle machine for me so I have nothing to compare it to.

    I sold it last weekend to an older man who wanted it for some heavy duty sewing. He had done his research and knew he wanted a 130 or Necchi ???. I'm sure he will take care of it. He said he loved mechanical. So, it probably went to a good home.
