Yahoo groups offer many choices. Right now my favorites are Vintage Singers and We Fix It. You must be a member but signing up is easy.
I recommend Nicholas Rain Noe's Blog The Vintage Singer Sewing Machine Blog. He is very good at tutorials and an inspiration
Also check out My Sewing Machine Addiction blog. This is a great blog devoted to the restoration from inside out, of a 1940 Singer 201.
TOOLS. You really have to have the right tools. Get a set of hollow ground screwdriver bits. Again, The Vintage Singer Sewing Machine Blog has advice
