I am a Necchi lover, even if I'm Italian. I own a Supernova BU and a Lycia 524 as standard machines and a BFL just for the love of her. I recently bought a couple of necchi Silvia Maximatic hoping I could make one out of two but I discovered they are totally different!!! Looks like that even without a change in name and number (both 586) the bobbin case is totally different and.
As you wished, the handweel was moved up while the design dialer is a knob with a different shape for the youger one (I'm using the S/N for dating). So, it looks like you were not the only one complaining about it! I have a Necchi Automatic Supernova Ultra Mark 2 (whew! Long name!) that I bought from Craigslist this past summer. It is in pristine condition, in its original cabinet, with all of the cams and feet. I'm not a Necchi addict but I did join the Yahoo group to get help but haven't needed any. I also paid $60 for mine.
I will admit I bought it more for its beauty (mine is the pink and cream) and nostalgia than for using it but I do use it some and it sews beautifully. Mine was mfg. When was your Silvia mfg.?
Have a super duper day! I received and replied to this email which may be helpful to others.
Hi, My name is Patricia and I'm in the East Bay of CA. I found you via the blog Zigzaggers, which came up in my search to find info on fixing my Lelia's feed dog issue. I am hoping to pick you brain a bit further. I do belong to the Necchi user group and have posted this question there, but no joy!
Here is what I wrote/how I can best explain it: I've been a very happy owner of a Lelia 513 for about a year now. I bought her in superb condition, with alot of great feet and right away bought Triflow oil and made sure I kept the machine properly oiled. I love the stitches and the heavy duty aspect of this machine, it has taken me a year to truly get to know it. I clean, oil and trouble shoot using the user's manual and the service manual. However a few months ago I did start to have some problems with my feed dog.
It seemed to drop and I couldn't get it back up. I did tons of research and found info about cleaning, oiling and 'unfreezing' the feed dog mechanism. I did the whole alcohol clean up, put in tons of oil and then use a hair dryer. But the lever just goes up/down seemingly not attached to anything. I have a feeling I'm not aiming the hairdryer in the proper place. Where exactly do I aim the heat from the hairdryer? Is there anything else I can possibly try to get my feed dog to drop up and down?
Tammy, if you have any insight or advice you can give I would be eternally grateful! Best, Patricia Hi Patricia, Before you try anything more.did your feed dogs ever drop?
If you have visited my blog you know I collect vintage machines. Right now my Lelia is set up for free motion quilting with the feed dogs down. Here is how it works on the Necchi 513. When the plastic lever is pushed down the feed dogs are disengaged. This is not automatic I have to turn the hand wheel towards me.
