Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I had one for sale for a while in excellent condition. I did finally sell it. This was the one I had. No burn marks!
Right now, I'm trying to figure out just where I can put the industrial treadle that I have in storage. It's been there since I bought it, and I'm thinking about doing some upholstery. Thought it would be a really cool machine to use for that!!
Re: the BU, I have one, but removed all of the wiring, etc. and put it in a treadle. Necchi will fit in a Singer base, and they make an AWESOME machine!!
Well, I'm going to need a wiring diagram for the Necchi BU. I'll go ask on the Necchi yahoo group. I've had to reset the circuit breakers twice, and the rest of the house is getting a little shrill about the electrics going off and on. Darn kids. .Wish I had room for another treadle and I could put it in on like MizJohnny suggests. But chances are this will be a catch and release, so i need to figure out the wiring. Cathy, do you have any hints for me?(Besides stop messing with things you don't understand, cause then I'd basically have to stop doing everything!) Laura
I won't tell you to stop. IF I did I wouldn't have any reason to come over anymore. You wouldn't need rescuing anymore.
On a more serious note I am trying to make up a diagram for you. I'm just waiting for my phone/ camera to recharge. It died while I was taking pictures.

I just aquired a Husquavarna Viking, from the fifties is my best guess. It has an army green crinkle factory finish and rounded design like the old Singers, unlike the squared ones that came later. Can anyone direct me to a thread about Vikings? I have no manual but know my way around these older machines. Will anything take the grime off a crinkle finish? Any ideas about how to date it? Serial Number C331917, Manufactured in Sweden. Maybe by the time I get him cleaned up, I'll learn to post pictures here. His name is Luden, written on the bottom of the drawer was Little Luden. Just occurred to me Luden might be a girls name in Sweden. Blush
Life is made up of bits and pieces. You won't know how it'll turn out till its done.
