After discovering an interest in vintage machines mostly inspired by members at my local quilt guild, I bought a couple of Featherweights in Wichita, Kansas and Dallas, Texas. I initially thought I needed to take a class on refurbishing, but could never seem to fit it into my schedule.
A quick online search revealed a place in Idaho that provides free video tutorials with step-by-step instructions for refurbishing and maintenance. Their shop carries replacement parts, handy squirt bottles and other necessities.

*Renaissance Micro-Crystalline Wax Polish is what I use on my APQS longarm rails. I've read that it's less abrasive than other waxes. You can see from the photos that it worked very well on the outside of this Featherweight machine.
