Car boot finds...

I bought this sewing machine for £5 from the Bakewell car boot sale. A lovely old lady sold it to me and it's in perfect working order. It did need a bit of a scrub though, you can see in the photograph the patch that I cleaned and what a big difference it made. The only problem with the machine is that some of the metal has yellowed, can anyone recommend a way of removing this? I  have tried bicarbonate of soda and lemon juice so far but neither have made much difference! The first project I have planned is to make my own cat collar, so I will post the results when I have finished.
