Question about Sewing Machines

Can you tell me when the 132K6 was made? I have a very old industrial one that does not even turn that I found on a junk heap and put lots of oil and such but did not work. It does say Singer.

Unless the machine is rusted, liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube and heat from a handheld hairdryer (or setting in the hot sun) will most likely loosen things.

How much oil do I need to put into an industrial Ovelocker Brother EF4 B531?

All industrial machines have a sight glass to determine oil level. Most have two red lines--lower is lowest amount of oil to run. Upper is highest amount to run. Some machines show level of oil but some have a vertical rod. The end of the rod is the oil level. It will raise as you pour oil in.

Can I use synthetic motor oil for a very old industrial sewing machine which has a oil tank

Probably but you have to be careful that the weight of the oil is appropriate - hopefully it says what weight oil to add. Adding oil that is too thin may cause leakage/dripping onto your projects. Adding oil that it too thick may cause the unit to run loudly and not get proper lube.

Also, some synthetic oils do not blend well with common oils and may form an emulsion (like mayo). If it is very old, using cheaper common oil won't hurt it. I would stick with the common oil unless you clean out the old oil from the tank.

Good luck and please rate me.

Singer 132K6 industrial machine

Make sure that the thread is under the tension spring then thread it throgh the hole in the spoolcase,push the spoolcase retainer over to hold it in then turn the balance wheel towards you to pick up the thread through the hole in the needle plate, pull both threads back and sew away. I can supply a manual for this machine if you want one.
