Question about Necchi Sewing Machines
A year ago my wife bought and I carried home above described sewing machine from a yard sale. She wanted the cabinet for another machine (I was to refinish the cabinet, including veneer replacement). This project has finally come to the top of the list. Before I removed the machine from the cabinet, curiosity overcame, and I powered it up. It runs strongly.
My question is this: Is this machine worth leaving in the cabinet and the time and money to restore also?
Are parts and service availible for a machine this old?

Try http://www.sewingstyle.com/Necchi-Sewing-Needle-Plates.html - the BU Nova is a 50's era machine so you may have to hunt down a second hand spare part or see if one of the other model plates will fit this model.
Also there are 3 or 4 Necchi Italian machine owner groups on Yahoo, I'd suggest that you join the one called Necchisewingmachineclub and then check out any posts on spare parts and see what you can glean there. Just read the group rules as often they like members to "share" information and don't like newbies to drop in and post a question then disappear. Or ask the same question on several groups (crossposting).
I know that many Super Nova owners love their machines and highly regard them.
Good luck tracking down the part for yours.

Bu Mira was made in Italy between 1952-1956 it was the machine where the introduced the Wonder Wheel to make decorative stitches, olive green in color . There are some people who collect them but like all antiques the rearer the are and the better origonal condition the are in the more the are worth.

i repair a lot of sewing machines as a hobby .. the necchi is one of the better ones .. they are easy to use and work well .. i almost always dontate the repaired machines to places like "womens shelter" .. "home for troubled girls" or just give them to someone that has nothing or cant afford new machines ... it sometimes makes a difference in their life if someone helps them get started .. modern machines vary from really cheap junkers that somehow work to really expensive machines that do everything but are completely out of reach for many.. the old necchis are better than many new machines but no one knows that .. so typically they sell for only $20 to $50 ... but if you donate a working machine to someone it can help, then its worth it weight in gold ..

You can always pick up a whole new unit, that way you have all the spare parts you will ever need. See the following link for a unit in brand new condition for about $500:
Or you can contact the Necchi Customer Support team to see if they can recommend a parts dealer in your area:
Or maybe these guys will have a motor that will fit yours:

SOURCE: looking for the reverse button
There is no reverse button, it is a lever.The stitch length lever also reverses the feed dogs - when down, it runs forward - at zero, it does not feed at all and when moved up, it reverses the machine. Set your stitch length by loosening the thumbscrew on the vertically moving lever and sliding the plate into position while moving the lever up to the desired mark. Tighten the screw and move the lever down to sew - to reverse just move the lever up until it hits the stop to sew the same stitch length in reverse.
