oh i forgot
since it looks like you have an extenal motor and belt be carful putting things next to it: cat tails can be pulled easily on the belt.
i use large rubber band for belts on mine because real belts dont seem to fitand they are a pain to replace since i have to take the motor loose then add change the belt and re tighten the motor but i cant keep the belt tension and then the belt gets too loose. So i found rubber bands work well for replacements 2 at a time.
before you use it make sure you have the right power for it or have it rewiredor use a power strip. some older machines can suck power or have really old wiring that needs to be checked. aluminum wiring and cause fires, (moms old house burned down from a fire caused by her machine ((freaky i know))) grounding is important.
