Can I fix my Elna?

I have an Elna Supermatic (Beige, Type 722010) that worked great last time I used it (two years ago...) and now runs incredibly sluggishly. Or doesn't run. I tried oiling it with 3 in 1 and waiting, but that didn't help. I'm not entirely sure it is worth fixing, though this is an early, all steel-parts, Swiss-made machine so it is theoretically a keeper.

Weird detail: there was a small puddle of oil around one of the machine's feet that totally disintegrated the rubber foot. I can't really figure out how that would be related but it seemed like almost a tablespoon of clear oil. Puzzling.
