antique hand-crank operated Singer sewing machine, found in a trash pile at local flea market. Brought it home and set it upon my antique radio (the radio was free too- it was given to me by my aunt) in my living room.

I LOVE antiques! Even if they're not particularly valuable

A good soaking with Liquid Wrench until the parts are loosend up then soaking with sewing machine oil and this would be a great working machine. Be carefull using anything strong to clean it so not to ruin the decals. Maybe just wipe it with sewing machine oil and and it will be nice. Just nothing with alcohol or abrasives.
Its a very nice find. Please don't turn it into a lamp or such.
