Lucey Bliss lubrication

Recommended Posts

Susan, I'm not familiar with Tri-Flow lubricant but I've never seen it used on an APQS machine. Take a look at the Cleaning and Oiling instructions that came with your Lucey - those instructions keep our machines ticking along as they should!

Tri-Flow appears to be motorcycle chain oil.   I for one would not use it on my George.  It might work, but why take the risk?

Plus, I do not believe it would be an easy lubricant to get our of fabric.


May your threads be balanced, and your bobbin forever full….

Probably a little light for motorcycle chain but definitely bicycle chain and cables.

Tri-Flow superior is commonly used in the vintage sewing machine community.  It is a very light viscosity oil that also helps soften up and flush out the years old oil that has turned to gum. It would work fine in our machines but my understanding is the PTFE will not pass through the wicks.  So since you need the regular sewing machine oil for the wicks, why bother having two products when one will do.  Now if I was servicing one of our machines that had been sitting for a few years I wouldn’t hesitate to take off the side cover and give the mechanicals a good soaking with Tri-Flow.
