    I hope you got the Necchi!!

    One because its pink and two because it's a NECCHI!!
    Never met a scrap of fabric or vintage sewing machine I didn't like!
    Many a lost and lonely vintage machine has found a home with me, 26 and------ uh oh lost count.

    I absolutely love Red Eyes' and would buy that one just to look at. I don't even bother sewing on these machines, they are just eye candy for me.

    If you where choosing between the Necchi and a Singer 401 (or maybe even a 201) I'd say "Singer" but NOT for an older 66.

    75$ is too much for the Singer, IMO, but right for the Necchi. You can turn the plate of the Necchi to get a smaller hole for SS or a larger one for ZZ; if you quilt AND sew clothing, it`s very convenient.

    I'm going with the Necchi only because it IS in working condition. The Singer I would probably just try to clean up and make pretty. Thanks for the opinions. Obviously I don't know much about older machines and ya'll were a great help.

    Well, if I didn't have any other machines, I'd get both. It is nice to sew on a machine that's in a cabinet but it's also nice to sew on the Singer. Singer looks to have a larger harp than the Necchi.

    I passed up two Singer Red Head/Eye's this past summer. One was $35 and the other $45. Your Necchi would be a much more versatile machine with more stitches. Those Necchi owners LOVE theirs, so go for it! Plus a cabinet with storage. The base on the Singer isn't the greatest either. My 201 came in one and it was beyond repair.
