    I got my first can of it last night too. I haven't used it yet. I could only find it at Harbor Freight also.

    I donít know where the ID on these are, I am sure I paid to much for the portable but it ran so good and seems to be complete. The cabinet one was $100, is that to much? I did not know they had attachments for these machines. Iím sure what I will do with them. The chain stitching I have is done with commercial machines, much faster and better coverage.

    Phyllis, those machine are gorgeous! I love my W&G machines, but geeze you got a steal on both of them! I'd of taken those in a heartbeat!

    The serial number should be under the bed/table on the front of the actual metal of the machine. On one of my machines the SS starts with an A then has 6 digits. Look with a flashlight on the very front on the machine base under the bed/table.

    Once the gold is gone its gone. If you think you can gold leaf it you can try but its not easy as if looks. I watched my buddy do the gold leaf on a car I shot and it was really amazing how it works. He painted the glue on then let it tack up then placed the gold leaf over it. After he was finished then I shot another 2 gallons of clear over it.

    Not Billy, but no. There's no way to make the decals gold again if they silver when you're cleaning the machine. You COULD repaint or use gold leaf, but unless you're exceptionally good at it, it will be obvious.

    That's a pretty machine...I'd use sewing machine oil to clean the body of it with...

    I know it is time consuming to do the gold leaf. What about gold paint. I have been known to paint with a brush with 3 or 4 bristles just to get that extra thin line.

    If you think you can pull it off you can try but like Charlee stated just clean it up and let her go! Have you ever tried a pinstripe brush? They will lay some nice thin lines and will hold a lot of paint. There are several types and you can get them from Eastwood.com

    Oh I forgot to tell you that I have to go to the doctors again, it is not looking good.

    Hope you health improves. Hang in there Billy. Sending prayers to you.

    Thanks for the advise. I will see what it looks like after cleaning.
    Is cleaning with machine oil better/easier on the decals than the Goop?

    My Featherweight has an oil pan? Never knew. How do you get to it? And what do I use to replace the fiber/cardboard?
    It's probably not called an oil pan, but its on the bottom of the machine. There's a big screw there and inside there is a black paper/cardboard in the bottom. Just take it out, cut a new, and replace. I used a shoe box lid, will need to replace it I'm sure. DH says not to oil it so much and there won't be any excess oil.
