Use only a good grade of oil.
Inferior oils may cause the machine
to become sluggish.
Use only oil whose label spec
ifies “for Sewing Machines.”
If your machine is used continuously, it should be oiled every day ;
preferably when you are done using the machine for the day. If not
in constant use, oil the machine before using.
Use ONE drop of oil on bearings, and wherever one part rubs against
another, or turns within another part.
Some such parts are visible to the eye. Others are hidden inside tfie
castings. Hence look for all oil holes in the casting as indicated by arrows
in the picture. Insert the oil can nozzle well into the oil hole.
Before oiling the oil hole to the RIGHT of the spool-pin on top of the
machine, turn the balance wheel until the needle is DOWN at its lowest
point, and look into the oil hole to see that the oil receptacle on the shaft
is in position.
Also remove the face plate by loosening the screw near the top and
lifting the face plate up and off. Turn the balance wheel slowly by
hand and watch the mechanism under the face plate to see which parts
move and require oil.
Next, put three drops of oil in the bobbin raceway after the race has
been removed as described at the top of page 12.
The machine is also to be oiled from the back. Loosen the screw hold
ing the metal plate, move the plate out of the way, and tighten the screw
to hold it there. Turn the balance wheel slowly in order to see which
parts move and require oil.
