& We can still get it t for


This one is in remarkably good condition. It runs like a top.

If you are you probably know all about the Necchi

I'll add some of many comments:

First let me say.

This is not the machine to buy unless you know it has been completely and I mean completely cleaned & adjusted. Most of the machines of this era that are in great cosmetic condition, are that way because they have seen little use. That's great, except that the 40yr old oil has turned to glue. It is very easy to get the needle working & show a couple stitches on an old napkin, but how about all those other little moving parts. On a machine like this t are at least 100 or so connections that must be looked at & they are not that easy to find & fix or degrease. T are only a couple eBay guys that spend the time needed to do this. I'm one of them. Just to send it to the repair shop for a tune-up is not enough. Unless you ask for a complete overhaul & plan to spend $$$$ it may work, but it will not be right. This & all my machines are right & work as intended.

The Necchi has become may favorite, both to sew on & work on.

The Italian engineers that designed the Necchi of this era had pure genius.

& I think this model was their best.

The 1 Amp, 4,500 RPM motor produces more power than those bigger new motors.

Due to the lower RPM's This one walks fast while the other one have to run.

It also has a Hi & Lo speed switch. (You'll probably never run it on Hi)

The mechanism is solid & simple.

The directions are easy to follow for oiling and maintenance.

It has a very nice speed controller for the fashion discs, making it very easy to control the stitch detail.

The fashion discs are super heavy duty & should never wear out.

The bobbin winder it one of the coolest thing I have ever seem.

I will be adding some additional Info, Pics & Comments, so check back.

As you can see from the pictures, this machine is in superb condition. This are only a couple very minor scratches (you will have to look hard to find them)

The storage box is very solid & works well, but a bit of the covering is worn.

Unsure if this machine is right for you? I will try to help. I have more than 100 high quality vintage machines which will be listed after they have been thoroughly inspected, cleaned & adjusted. I can find an appropriate match for your needs and make it available ASAP. Or just add me to your favorites list.

Okay, now for the nuts and bolts:

Most machines go to the shop with a work order.

A simple "clean & adjust" procedure can run from $75.00- $150.00 plus the cost of repairing or replacing malfunctioning parts can total $200.00 or more.

This machine has been totally cleaned inside & out.

All its high speed bearings (bushings) have been thoroughly cleaned out. I use a petroleum based cleaner and run the machine at low speed to soften up deposits of built up sewing machine oil & dirt.

I then used 2 more applications of cleaner, running the machine at high speed for a couple of minutes between applications.

After cleaning, these points were blown out with 150 PSI air pressure.

Next, all of the oscillating contact points were blown out with an aerosol solvent.

I applied a high quality lithium grease to the gear assemblies and used stainless sewing machine oil for bushings & other moving parts.

The hook assembly was removed, checked for damage, cleaned, and polished.

I removed the motor and found it to be in great condition. The brushes showed almost no wear and the end bushings were lubricated. I installed a new belt to ensure the best performance.

The tensioner ...
