Thank you for your question on the old Kenmore sewing machine.

This is a 1954 model Kenmore built by White sewing machine.

Use good quality sewing machine oil that you can purchase in most fabric stores.

I assume you are referring to needles for the machine which are standard needles but you thread them from left to right because the shuttle is on the end instead of facing you.

Replacement parts will be a problem.

I will give you a link for some information on this model sewing machine.
