Learn about one of the
Learn about one of the most important parts of sewing machine repair, lubrication. Oil and grease rarely "ware out". What happens is they get contaminated with lint, dust, moisture, oxygen, etc and the solvents that keep oil and grease in a liquid state, evaporate away. Slowly turning your lubricant into an adhesive. That's why old hinges squeak and hand wheels get hard to turn.
Thankyou very much
Really well explained. I have a singer 507 that I’ve ordered new gears for as some of the bobbin gear teeth snapped due to the problem you mentioned.
Nice job with the content. Very useful.
Allen has repaired my sewing machine and helped me with maintenance for years. He is amazing! I brought a friend to him and he was able to repair a machine that hadn't work right in decades. Hope you are doing well, Allen.

A few of my friends
A few of my friends haven't tried lubing cars yet so I just made a little video to show them, and anyone else who's interested, how I lube my cars. There are probably better methods out there, since I'm an unproven modder after all, but I've been able to make my cars much faster on my track.
WOW. Thanks for making this video. It's really helpful. Keep going. You are the best. You are awesome. I have your back. I created my own channel Russell Designer to show even more cars highlights. Come to check it out and I will always follow you back
It helps,thanks for the tip
I've used graphite but I haven't been as diligent at getting good coverage. I'll give this a try
It's better than nothing but polishing the axle or replacing them with polished stainless steel axles is way better
Nice share friend ?
Do you have a noisy garage
Do you have a noisy garage door that is loud enough to wake the dead? In this video I show how easy it is to quiet a loud squeaky garage door. If you lubricate your noisy garage door about once a year, it'll stay quiet and last much longer. Garage doors don't have to be so loud when they operate, and the process to quiet a loud door is really easy. Make your squeaky garage door a thing of the past by following this simple step-by-step guide that will only take about 15 minutes to complete. A quiet door is one that also lasts longer, so keep your garage door running smooth and quiet for years to come.

Several folks have asked about the sound meter app I used in this video. It's called "Decibel: dB sound level meter", and is available for iPhone on the app store here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/decibel-db-sound-level-meter/id1227650795

That wasn't dust blowing out. That was graphite lubricant. Its the same lubricant that is used for interior door hinges. It is a better product for longevity and also no as much dust collected in it. Anit seize should be used on chain drives and such. Using white lithium in a can is not as good as in a bucket and a brush. This is useful for a DYI. But not for longevity.
WD-40 will not destroy anything. It is a water repellant and it does not attract dirt any more than any other lubricant spray. It does degrade polymers but as there are no rubber parts on most wheels it will not do anything bad but protect it from corrosion at best.
I used WD-40 Brand Spray Silicone. Lithium Grease attracts dirt and becomes abrasive. I clean the tracks several times a year and re-apply the Spray Silicone. No lubricant is permanent. The grease is messy and requires more effort. Go with Silicone Spray.
What if it is a door that hasn't been maintained? there is dirt in the grease.
Shit, I just used WD-40
