Necchi BU Miranda (1959)

Can anyone make any sense out of these names?
Anyhow found this near perfect condition Miranda with an excellent condition case, manual, and  accessories.

Absolutely filthy with oil varnish, so it required the full disassembly, soaking in SuperClean, and brushing with PineSol.
I have this whole operation down to 5 or 6 hours.



The SuperClean is perfect for chromed and unpainted parts; it will remove paint and etch aluminum! From experience I know this; the chrome parts need nothing but rinsing off.

For the all the painted parts I went with PineSol; couple of sprays, wait five minutes and scrub with a very soft scrub pad. To return the shine I like to use TR3.
Original case with logo on the front.

The thing with Necchi is the ultra smooth as silk running, this is exactly like my Nora, with a twist of the hand wheel it spins silently.
