    Old Necchi Questions?????

    I got an older Necchi machine in a cabinet from my Husband's Aunt, she says it doesn't work, I haven't tried it out. It is a Necchil Model BU????

    Anyone know anything about it??

    TIA, Jeanne

    Not sure this is a Super Nova, I haven't tried to get it out of the cabinet yet, seems like something is stuck so I don't wanna pull too hard on it. There are alot of accessories with this one too. I contacted a sewing machine shop to see if they could fix it, not exactly sure what is wrong with it either. Thanks for the tips. Is yours a work horse or is it persnickity? TIA, Jeanne

    I have two...

    Great machine. The most quiet stitching of any machine I have. The thread tension can be a challenge if not totally clean. Sew with as little tension as needed. Oil it well. They love to consume oil more than the average machine. I hope you have to cams and button hole cam. The machine is belt driven, and you should check it for wear. I believe I used a standard belt for it and it worked fine. Let me know if you need the manual. It is truly a GREAT machine.

    That's an old one, but the one I started on and made my first skirt on when I was 10.. was a Necchi..the black one with the knee "arm"... not a foot pedel! You pushed this long arm that hung from below the machine...to the right with your knee! It was black.. and went forward. .. only. NO backwards, no zigzag.. nothing but forward and stop and start! But boy it made my clothes and my sisters before I started sewing and I used it for years until Mom got a Brother in a drawing in Las VEgas...it had zigzag and reverse!!!

    I got a machine that was stuck in the cabinet. The screw holding the hinge pin was loose - no access to it either. You could try positioning the machine/cabinet so it is on the end of the pin to ease it down onto the pin better, then pull the machine out. We had to unscrew the top of the cabinet to get to the pin screw. Older Necchi's are nice machines.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    DanofNJ,

    Could you post pics of your cams? We have a set of unidentified cams and we'd love to know what they fit.

Size:  450.8 KBlots more pics of parts, etc. can't find a knee or foot pedal anywhere either. Sure is a Cool Looking sewing machine tho called a local sewing machine repair guy and he said it probably isn't worth refurbishing it, he said over $100.00 just to get it in running order and I don't think there are any cams with it. I can post some more pics of accessories if anyone thinks they can tell me what they are. I have 2 footplates, lots of different decorative feet, and a bunch of stuff inside a metal jar type thing and a box full of other accessories with it. It is SOOO COOL wish I could get it fixed and in working order.

    As far as cams go, ebay may help. There's a batch of Necchi cams on there for sale right now, though I don't know if they fit the BU. Maybe someone who has one can say.
