This is a 50's machine and the bottom part of the case is made of wood. One of the hinge pins that holds the machine in place and allows it to be pivited in the case is missing. I can't find a replacement or any other way to repair it.

Most sewing machines can use a double needle, the one with the single mounting shank and it turns into two needles.
MAKE sure you have Zig Zag needle plate installed to accomodate the double needle.
Turn hand wheel slowly to test then use thread and fabric and turn flywheel by hand to test sew.
You can also use a Eureka vacuum cleaner belt, can't remember the exact model, but the package says it's for most sewing machines. It's not the V belt, but it works on my Super Nova and it's 1.79 for two!
You can search sewing machine manuals here online and find your Supernova Manual for 10-15 dollars. http://www.sewingmanuals.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Necchi.htm
As far as using WD-40 please don't use that. It is not for oiling. The WD stands for Water Displacement. It was designed for automotive electrical, etc. It is also a good penetrant for loosening nuts and bolts or stuck parts.
You need to use regular real sewing machine oil (white oil) that can be found most any store or another great product is called Tri-Flow from hardware stores that has Teflon in it. WD-40 is not oil.
