Industrial Sewing Machine Oil
We sell white lily, Juki and Cutsew brand sewing machine oil for Juki, Singer, Brother, Consew and literally any industrial sewing machine. If you need oil for your sewing machine, but don’t know how much industrial sewing machine oil to purchase, you can better determine the amount by watching our video on oiling your industrial sewing machine.
The only ingredient in our Cutsew Sewing Machine Oil is 100% White mineral oil (petroleum). Our customers demand the highest quality to keep their machines up and running. So here is the facts on our Cutsew brand industrial sewing machine oil.
Cutsew brand oil is the same as Juki Defrix Oil No. 1. It is a white sewing machine oil. It is colorless so not to stain fabrics. Like the defrix, it’s odorless so there is no smell to deal with either in operation or spillage. And our super refined oil really is easy to clean up. If you need more technical specs, our MSDS is available.
Read here to learn how to apply sewing oil to your industrial machine. Some folks landing on this page might be confused because they have a home sewing machine, in which case there is no oil, because you have plastic parts inside.Some of our customers, new to industrial sewing, will sometimes ask how to oil their industrial sewing machine. The video below is for those of you oiling your industrial sewing machine for the first or second time. There are essentially three kinds of industrial sewing machines, in regards to how you will oil your machine. • There is the oil bath type • There is internal oiling system • And the spot oiling system.
To identify which type you have, try to tilt the head back. The head on most spot oilers don’t move. Spot type oiling is usually reserved for specialty industrial sewing machines, an example would be a cylinder arm or just older walking foot machine. A lot of the old singer machines were spot type. The old spot types had no oil pump system and had to be oiled daily. Fortunately for our industry, that all changed around the 80’s and 90’s.
Now all we have to do is oil the machine in the appropriate spots periodically depending on use. If the user of the machine over does it a little with the oil, then there is a drip pan is underneath to catch it. You’ll notice multiple holes on the face of the machine. These are our oil spots. This machine should be oiled after 8 hours of use.
Let’s identify the other two types by tilting the head back on the sewing machine. As we tilt the head back, we are either going to find an oil bath or an internal oil tank. The internal oil tank is a closed loopsystem that generally has to be oiled with a small oiler at a specific point. Find the small rubber stop and remove it. Fill it to the line once and you’re good to go. Just make sure to keep an eye on the levels to make sure there are no leaks. But be careful not to put too much oil into the internal compartment, or you will be in trouble with a leak later on, and this could result in oil seepage into the electronics. AKA – a big fat headache.
So finally, let’s take a look at the Oil Bath type. If your machine has an oil bath, it will be apparent by the high and low lines that indicate where your oil levels should be in this large steel area. On most industrial sewers you’ll typically find an oil bath. To properly oil your oil bath type machine, go ahead and pour oil up to the fill line, and then run the sewing machine motor to get the oil pumping throughout the head.
The benefit of an oil bath is that you just pour the oil up to the line and typically just change it out annually or when it gets dirty, depending on use. For the past 50 years Cutsew has been stressing proper care of your industrial sewing machine, and of course this all starts with oiling your industrial sewer.
