It took a few years of ownership for the idea that my machine needs oiling to occur to me. Now that my brain has finally started, I'm wondering where I can get oil. Must I wait for my local shop to be open, or can I find it at Walmart?
I feel like such a git for neglecting maintenance on my poor machine. I swear, it won't happen again! (And I STILL might have to take the bugger in to fix the tension.)

Yes, walmart carries it.  Same oil as you use for hair clippers and such.  My machine came with a tiny vial of oil.  Did you check your notions package? (sorry if that sounds dumb...but I was so excited when I got my machine after having so many handmedowns and thrift store bought ones, I didn't notice the oil in mine for quite some time.

I've had my machine for... what? 10 years? And I just recently realized/decided I should oil the thing. Luckily, it's a good machine and isn't any worse for the neglect. I don't even think it really needed oil. But I did it anyway, just in case.

Anyway, you can buy oil at Walmart. Mine carries it where the sewing machines are located in the craft section. I was super excited because of that; the nearest JoAnn's is almost two hours away, and that's the only other place I could think of to get the stuff!
