Use Tri-flow oil and grease. Let me know if you have any trouble finding it.

you are sooo lucky! I got an old Singer in a cabinet but it's not in pristine condition like your new addition. The lady I got it from was throwing it out...the machine is in dire need of rewiring and was froze up, but I cleaned it up a bit and oiled it with Singer machine oil (I love Singer machines) and got parts moving, cleaned out the bobbin and area around the bobbin..really full of lint...As near as I can find out, from the Serial number G9980271, it was "born" in 1911. Could not find anything else but haven't had a lot of time to really look yet.
Glad you have such a great find.

My repair man, who is so wonderful, advised me not to change the electrical cord on mine. He said the old "cloth" cords are better for these machines as long as they are not frayed or have any bare spots. Mine looks awful, but is not damaged so I kept it as-is and it works just fine, but I ALWAYS unplug when not in use.

Pretty! I think we love them because the go to the early roots of machine quilting - and they are so nice to look at and sew like there's no tomorrow!
