Magnetic Thread Lubricator
Prevent your needle from gumming up with this handy oiling device. Simply sit or screw the magnetic oiler onto the top of the machine and run the thread through its reservoir to lubricate your thread and prevent needle gumming when sewing through ripstop fabric with seamstick or lighter materials with two layers of repair tape. You can lubricate up to three threads at the same time and is compatible with threads up to size V-69. It also helps to make thread tension more consistent. Use Sewers Aid Silicone Lubricant (not included) in this Sewing Machine Thread Lubricator's Reservoir for best results.

usefull thing, just needs a bit of modification

Works pretty well. Although mounting it is tricky on the Professional 4 Point Long Arm.
I didn't know until I mounted it that my machine has an aluminum cover. I got rid of the magnet on the bottom and then drilled a hole and "tapped" a 1/4 hole in the cover of my Pro 4PL and used a stainless screw to mount it. Also had to expand the fork in the mount., I just drilled to widen it.
I wish I knew what kind of lubricant it takes. The Sailrite recommendation of what to use (Sewer's Aid) only comes in 0.5oz. bottles. it's just to expensive to by in such small quantities. I wish I knew what type of lubricant it is, so I could buy it else where in larger quantities, like maybe 12 oz.
Good but needs improvement

The lubrication process works well. However, the magnet needs to be stronger to withstand the vibration from the machine. It would also benefit from a little instruction sheet on how to mount it. It comes with this little 'thingy' that I think is used for stabilizing the lubricator. I thought I had it figured out but my idea didn't work because the magnet is weak.
