Since a lot of people have emailed me asking to elaborate on what to do to clean and restore old sewing machines, I did some research and found a series of 8 videos on You Tube.
If you are just starting out with a vintage machine the following videos by Duncan Hill are worth watching. He does a thorough job of explaining how to dismantle the machine, clean the machine and of course put it back together.
Here is the link:
If the above link does not work do a search on you tube for the title above.
Remember there are 8 parts. I saved them to my watch list, that way I can quickly find them if needed.
Even though these videos are specific to the hand crank singer, most of the old singer non-motorized
machines are very similar.
I hope this helps everyone with restoring or just cleaning the vintage singer machines.
Let me know how you do.
