Just in case anyone ends up with a Wizard Citation "Ten Lightweight"
They are identical to the Brother Festival series, just badged differently.

Brother replacement parts work perfectly and it takes class 15 bobbins etc...

There seem to be plenty of Brother Festivals out there, only seen one like mine but it's good to know my guesses were correct about all the parts I ordered.

Also, in the YouTube clips I hear the SAME grinding clunky noise and it seems to be the normal for these machines. My 201-2 is so smooth that I am unused to the cam sound. My 306k clicks up a racket too ;)

Anyway, hth anyone who ends up with this oddball machine...

I use a bike lube to "oil" my machine. I put a tiny drop on every metal on metal moving part (there are like 30 of them but I may be exaggerating because it's slow making sure that a full rotation does not show a part that only move a minut amount at the end of the turn! of them. ) I take off the top, the side and tip to the bottom, unplug and slowly turn the fly which back and forth to be sure I got ALL the joints that don't need grease) and run for a few mintues at high speed. Timing can make the machines click to.

PS - I meant unplug the machine and then take apart and lubricate!

Wow! Thanks so much for this info! I have a Wizard Citation Ten Lightweight Model: 3KC-8838 and it's been really hard to find any info on it so far. I knew they were made by Brother but I didn't realize that the same machine existed also under the Brother brand name. Makes things a lot easier for parts!

It is also similar to the Bradford model 7068 (made for WT Grants by Bradford. I have a manual for that one if anyone needs a copy.
