Caution: don't put wintergreen into a dispenser plastic bottle, even those with a metal point/dropper. I learned the hard way. it basically destroyed it!.

Will review all of your research & Update on results.
You are welcome. I hope it works.

It does mention using a new metal paint can to put the mixture in. I know essential oils can be a little pricey that is why I mentioned the Thor's #12 tire prep beside that what was shown as being used. I forgot to mention some have had better results by heating the item before putting in the mixture (some have used almost boiling water and other have used xylene/xylol). Another note that I read about is that it will sometimes swell but returns to normal size after drying out a few days.

I'm not sure I got the links absolutely right. I read quite a few pages of using wintergreen oil and water or xylene. I did a little more reading and found http://www.hdmworld.com/tirepreps.htm that has a Thor #12 quart (32 oz) for $19 - don't know what shipping would be, though.

I wish I had some old rubber to test. I work in a sheet metal shop and I know we use xylene to clean gunk off sheet metal, and then I would have to find the wintergreen oil- oh well.

Janey - Neat people never make the exciting discoveries I do.

Note: Do not heat xylene at all!!!!!!

The water mixture is heated to help rubber absorb the oil.

I got a list of performance stores in the area to try to avoid shipping. Volunteering at church today, so it will have to wait.
Cut my finger last night while slicing zucchini. It was the last slice! Tried to stop it for 2 hours, no go, so then went to the ER. Only 3-4 stitches, but it is splinted and wrapped to nearby finger. Could not put more stitches, because it is on the side of nail.
Having trouble typing. Will get back.

That is a beauty! I love that cute little cabinet for the treadle. I have a hand crank 27, and it has more piercing power than my Necchi Supernova Ultra Mark II. I used it to make a new bike seat cover from leather recycled from a leather couch.

Hello, I also found a difference in the heads, my treadle has a riser for the flat spool pin holder/inspection plate and my other has the top shape of the Model 66. I don't know if there are any differences inside.[ATTACH=CONFIG]605936[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]605937[/ATTACH] The treadle is circa 1953 and the other is a centennial 1951.

Hello Charlie777 and welcome. Some 201s have that spool pin plate and some don't. Your 1953 is not a treadle model, a treadled 201 would have the large spoked hand wheel. The smaller solid hand wheel came on the electric machines, and yours being a later 201 it most likely was born an electric machine.
