So it hasn't seen a repairman over 15 years.
My grandmother has a 1930s Singer that she still uses. This one belonged to my aunt and I remember her using it when I was younger so I am definitely attached to it. Her kids do not sew and were just going to throw it away. Once I get it working I plan to keep it in good working order.

Thank you for the welcome. I figured I would ask more experienced people for help rather than risking damage to my machine or just overall making it harder on myself.

Glad to know that there is hope for my machine.
