Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now am found, was blind, but now I see. [John Newton (1725-1807)]
I'm cleaning up my Necchi SuperNova. What can you use to clean the accessory box? Water and a bit of dish soap? I read that they are made of bakelite?
Thank you, Anamaria
I live in TOPEKA but just don't have the room for a treadle.
One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
It looks like a Chandler Button Machine. Not sure about the model, but it could be a 471. It sews buttons onto clothing. It can be set to 2-hole or 4-hole buttons, but I’m not sure about shank buttons. It’s operated by hand crank, and the machine does a “cycle” of so many stitches to attach the button before cutting the thread. Many Dry Cleaners still use them, and I got to work on one for our local cleaners. I fell in love with it, and I’ve been trying to snag one for our little shop.

did i see treadle speak again? someone needing a treadle to show a little tlc to? well here is one that is just waiting to be rescued. it looks like it needs plenty of tlc.
and for the vintage necchi lovers here is a machine that boasts being 30 yrs old almost 'brand new'
i luv the cute mini machines.
