I'm not sure how to post this to the sewing machine section.
Yesterday, I brought home a little beige Elna automatic - she has a flat bed but under it is a free arm waiting for a plate - she is from the late 1950s or early 60s. She has Elna in BIG bold letters down the front right side. She hardly weighs anything, I think she will tote good. She only has one thin disc (a scallop stitch), one bobbin and one zigzag foot and a Necchi foot control with a new cord. I haven't gotten her to do the scallop consistently or zigzag at all - she seems to have simple settings yet I haven't gotten her dial combinations figured out. Does something hold the disc down? It seems to slide up the shaft. I wonder if she needs a zigzag disc to do zigzag. She does very nice straight stitches. She spins good and once I oiled her she purrs right along. She has very few nicks and scratches. She has an internal belt drive. I found discs on Ebay for an arm and a leg.
