Heat speeds things up, a very nice trick to be reminded of. Keep oiling and moving the lever, if it's caused by dirt and grime it will take a bit of effort to flush it out. It usually works well by repeating it often.

I see you have to be  clever with some machines, tension units are not all the same.

p.s. the spider will have to go :(

LOL, was it like that when you handed it in?

Hopefully everything shifts nicely know. Have you threaded it up, test sewed a few buttonholes?

It was just like that when he gave it to me, but I have washed it now :)

It still isn't working - the knob which should pull out when you want to buttonhole will not pull out, although it turns, so taking it apart again - but I'm determined to get there eventually.
