I have a question. My featherweight is running great and I just oiled and lubed her yesterday, however she is very dull and I think she needs to have a good cleaning and shine on the outside. Any suggestions on what to use to clean and shine? She was built in 1935 the same year that I was born, but I think she will be running much longer than I will...

Thanks to the advice from this board, I use tri-flow. I oil with tri-flow and I'm using the rest of my machine oil that I have on hand, that isn't tri-flow, to get her shine really nice. I can see the lightbulb in her reflection.
