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.


  1. I’m impressed, I have to say. Really rarely do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you've got hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the problem is something that not sufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am very blissful that I stumbled across this in my search for something referring to this. online casino real money

  2. Hi Tom, I love your vintage sewing machines. I bought a Necchi Silvia 584 today at a garage sale. I've cleaned it up and oiled it. She sews perfectly, though a bit loud. Louder than my Bernina 930 that's for sure. The needle plate is chewed up. Do you have one for sale? The part number is Needle Plate, Necchi #1771110-00.

  3. Just picked up a Miranda model and I am looking for a pdf manual. Any leads?
