On each of the moving parts that are metal to metal contact you need only one drop. This is done on a regular basis, like 10000 stitches. If you do it more often it is ok. If you want to keep the machine going a long time it is recommended to clean areas that are moving. A good way to do this is with qtips. Under the bobbin there is a "racetrack". Put one drop of oil on it. Make sure you use only sewing machine oil. Other oils will damage your machine.

How can I do simple maintenance on my Brother PE700II?

look in the operation manual to see if it's self oiling or if you have to oil the machine, if you have to oil it, only oil the places it says In the manual..
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
when the machine is not in use, keep it covered with a cloth cover
also remember to use the right needle for the fabric being sewed

Oops! it is a Janome Memory Craft 6500, that I cannot figure out how to oil.

Don't stress. Open the acess door and put a few drops where the needle goes up and down and that's it. I personally think they over do and over stress oiling.

What size needles fit a Rex 26-188 walking foot machine?

16x63 needle system, unless it's been retimed for something else. Suggest you might want to find the dull, bent up or otherwise still intact needle and show it to your industrial supplier or repair person, so they can check for you.
Needle system tells you about the length and timing distance of the needle: see, e.g.: Size tells you about the diameter of the needle: here's a suite of home sewing machine needles, all of the same needle system, but one of the photos shows a comparison of sizes:

I have a Rex-607. I have used it twice sewing canvas for a boat enclosure. Now the needle will not pick up the bobbin thread. I have taken it apart, cleaned and oiled, adjusted the needle. Still all it...

Well, start by changing the needle. It is very likely to be worn.. and causing you a problem. Also take a look to see where the shuttle point ends up in relation to the needle when the needle is at it's lowest point.

The shuttle point should be just right behind and above the eye of the needle. If it is not... call a repair guy or your dealer for timing help.

Kenmore 385-16231 sewing machine. we are having problems with it breaking needles while sewing, we have never oiled this machine could this cause the needle breaking problem?

some sewing machines are self oiling some are not, instruction manual should tell,, when a sewing machine breaks needles it very possible that the machine is out of time & only a sewing machine repair shop has the tools to time the machine
