Two techniques for adding gold to a machine:  skin tattoos and how to DIY a gold decal  on a black machine.  I consider this one of my FINEST CONTRIBUTIONS to the community of vintage sewing machine repair.  No false modesty here!

  1. Hi! Wondered if you got my comment on the Poly on the antique machine? Using Blogger for the first time in a while, and I may not have done something right.
    Well.. I used Poly to brighten up a Featherweight, and I love it. Of course I got a reaction on the FW group that that is a big no no for antiques. Well.. I like it. I'm not looking to sell it...Nothing else worked.. shellac.. lacquer... etc. I guess folks may feel the same way about a shiny, urethane painted pink Featherweight. Thanks for the blog. I loved it.
