I am new to quilting, and had to have a Singer featherweight, after hearing
they were the best piecing machine. So I just got one and have to say I am
quite unnerved with the noise that comes from the shuttle/bobbin. I have
taken the entire shuttle out, cleaned and oiled it, still I get this tinny
sounding noise. I notice when I remove the bobbin and run the machine, it
doesn't make this noise. I tried a different bobbin, and still have noise.
Is this a characterstic of this machine, or am I missing something? Do I
need to use a lubricant/grease instead of oil?
Thanks for all your help.
