Question about Kenmore Drop-In Bobbin 505S-21BH Mechanical Sewing Machine
My machine needs oil it's seizing up...I'm not sure where to put the oil can you help...
SOURCE: How do I do a stretch stitch?
The bes way to hem a t-shirt on a household machine is to use a double needle, straight stitch. You will see two straight stitches on top and zig zag on the back. Just make sure the zig zag catched the top of the hem.

I surfed around this site for various suggestions, finally took the bottom plate off and cleaned and oiled all the parts along that rod that goes right across (think it's a drive bar that rotates). Ran the machine without thread in for a few minutes to let the oil soak in. Machine now works fine.
