Review:
The machine is super heavy duty. So far anything I have tried to sew, I have been successful.

Troubleshooting:
Very hard to find, especially as cheap as found mine. About impossible to get parts for unless you find a donor machine like I did.

The old Necchi's are like fine Italian sports cars, as in Lamborghini... smooth as fine silk charmeuse. One more Summer Shandy and I wont be able to type, already spelling is shot. Anyway, do tell us more about your machine.. Thx

The features on this machine is, zigzag built in, if you get the cams it opens a whole lot more options to stitch. I had to get my cams separate, but you can mix and match, come up with endless options. I just got another necchi about 2 weeks ago. Not a freearm but a regular machine. A great thing is no gears. The only plastic piece is the stitch length wormand I somehow broke it, so that's where I say if you need parts you'll have to find a donor machine. Tinkering with the 2 machines I have about figured out the ins and outs of the machines. I was sewing some denim, and after I counted the layers I ended up going through 15 layers. I did have hand wheel it along but it went through it. It doesn't likefine mmaterials though, best sewing with heavy weights.

Jeffery, try easing up on the presser foot pressure and/or decreasing the upper and lower tensions. I have the same Necchi and it's great with lightweight fabrics. $25 is a fantastic deal, by the way. I love the Necchis up to the early 60s; after that they were made in Asia and declined in quality.
