Recommended Supplies for Servicing your machine
by Admin on June 17th, 2014


If you are serious about maintaining your own vintage sewing machine, then you'll need some tools for the job. Designate a toolbox or basket to keep your tools in and don't let anyone use them. This list will give you a great start in creating your personalized tool kit.




• Screwdrivers: Flat & Phillips in various sizes. Both in long and short handles are recommended

• Right angle screwdriver (mainly used for removing the needle plate, where a regular sized screwdriver sometimes won’t fit depending on the model)

• Singer oil or any good sewing machine oil

• Newspaper (to protect your work surface)

• Can of compressed Air (the kind used for computer keyboards)

• Safety Glasses

• Tweezers

• Hex key set (some parts can only be removed with these)

• Punch set (some parts can only be removed with these)

• Disposable gloves (to keep your hands clean)

• Rags

• Kroil (EXCELLENT for unfreezing stubborn rusted parts). Either buy in a hardware store or online

• Flashlight

• Pliers

• Q-tips- for cleaning hard to reach areas

• Small mechanics magnetic tray (to keep parts safe. Never assume you won’t lose an important screw!)

• New Needles & Thread, size 12 & 14 needles are a good start. Buy quality thread. Refer to your sewing machine manual for the needle & thread chart. (Keep in mind that the needles and thread you will need will depend on the fabric you will be sewing on)

• Treadle Belt (if you have a treadle)
