Why does it not have a model number?

As I've mentioned before, my main machine is a heavy duty Necchi. It has no other information. There's a plate on the bottom edge when you lift it up that says "Made in Taiwan" so I know it's not an Italian one, and a serial number, but that's it. Googling for "heavy duty Necchi" doesn't help, because they're all listed as heavy duty. All of the others I come across are just called heavy duty by whoever is advertising them, so it doesn't even mean anything.

This machine reminds of some of the Kenmore machines that Sears sold years ago.

Janome (New Home) makes some Necchi models and presently makes Kenmore machines.

Maybe check out the Relics site and see if you can identify your Necchi model. Was wondering if it could be a 512 or 513??
There was a similar Nelco/Alco machine. My first machine was a Nelco and it was a nice machine. Very quiet and strong.

You could join the Yahoo group necchi files. Lots of knowledgable, helpful members.
You may get some help from necchi sewing machine club but they focus on the Italian made Necchis.

I just bought this same sewing machine at a thrift shop. I have searched the web to find out about this machine. It says it is a necchi but it was made in Taiwan. I hope it is a good machine. I do not have the attachments or the owners manual. I would like to buy them if anyone can help me with that I would appreciate it. Also any information you have about this machine would help.

Maybe depends on where you got yours from even. I think the people whom sell them on ebay, just even sort of borrow and make up and stick any name they feel like on them, anytime they want actually. I see some there now, they got painted up, and they are using even the old "Dressmaker" name on some, and then using "Omega" for some others.
