NEW Brand Name - Same Featherweight Shop Grease!

The Featherweight Shop Motor & Gear Lubricant has now been rebranded as SEW-RETRO GreaseTM Motor & Gear Lubricant!  We have now updated our Featherweight Shop Motor & Gear Lubricant video tutorial with a "Part 2".  It reflects the new brand as well as illustrates an additional melting point comparison!  As before, SEW-RETRO GreaseTM has been specially formulated with the proper melting point and lubricating qualities for vintage & antique sewing machines, including the Singer Featherweight 221 & 222K... some attachments need grease sometimes, too!  SEW-RETRO GreaseTM is appropriate for any and all sewing machines with all-metal gears. (Do not use this lube with any plastic or nylon gears.)


We are often asked if SEW-RETRO GreaseTM is appropriate for other vintage Singer Sewing Machine motors -- and the answer is yes - so long as your vintage Singer motor has motor ports with a felt wick inside.  If you are unsure of this, then if your manual indicates that your vintage Singer motor requires motor lubricant, then SEW-RETRO GreaseTM will be perfectly suited for your machine.

Each SEW-RETRO GreaseTM comes with an instruction sheet for application as well as a port-cleaning tool so you can clean out the motor ports of the old grease.  You can also use a Q-tip or hollow cotton swab (with both cotton swab ends cut off) as a replacement port-cleaning tool.

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below for how the Featherweight Shop Motor & Gear Lubricant (New Brand = SEW-RETRO GreaseTM) low-melting point motor & gear lubricant is the only one on the market that is appropriate for vintage and antique sewing machine motors, including Singer Featherweight 221 and 222K motors.
