I have just restored a Sealey Octofloat Deluxe with a Madeira green and black twist from www.sewingmachinesales.co.uk.
£2.30 for a 200M spool. It is as good a match as I could find as the original Jasper thread is very difficult to purchase. You will not be disappointed.
If you have no grease with you, and your rings are full of ice, do not cut out the ice with a pen-knife but get your man to put the rings one by one in his mouth, and so to thaw the ice.

I get mine made up by a guy in Cornwall, he trades on *bay under the name Richmour. I send him a sample and he makes it up for me, the last lot was twin green thread mixed with a single red, gave a perfect match.

Sorry to be a pain but went through all of the threads on the site and cannot find green and black.
