Necchi BU Nova | Necchi BU Mira | Necchi BF Nova | Necchi BF Mira | Necchi Service Manual

In a previous post of mine I mentioned the Necchi sewing machine model BF as the grandmother's machine, ideal for those who want to start using the sewing machine at almost zero cost. The abbreviation BF was introduced by Necchi to indicate the straight line sewing machines for domestic use (ita. Bobina Famiglia) with this model towards the end of the 40s as an alternative to the zigzag models called BU (Ita. Bobina Universale, precedentemente BDU, Bobina Domestica Universale, mentre le antenate della BF sono la BD e la BDA, Bobina Domestica con tendifilo Articolato ).
It is one of the most popular models in Italian families, which, together with its robustness, explains its relative frequency even today in the second-hand market. It is no coincidence that the manual reads, on the back cover, "A Necchi machine, if well used, lasts a lifetime or more". The reasons for the success of this machine over time are various and I will try to illustrate them all.

Bagat Jantar / Bagat Safir / Bagat Jantar i Safir / Novi Bagat

Svi znamo da je u bivšoj državi postojala poznata firma za proizvodnju šivaćih mašina, firma se zvala "Bagat". Bagat mašine su se prodavale širom bivše Jugoslavije. 
Proizvodnja je trajala decenijama, koliko ja znam početak je bio oko 1950 a kraj, tj, konačni stečaj i likvidacija 2011, znači Bagat je postojao oko 60 godina. 
Za to vrijeme je prodano stotine hiljada Bagat šivaćih mašina, bile su tu: Jadranka, Vesna, Slavica, Danica, Ruža...i danas je mnogo tih mašina u upotrebi.
Na stranici "mašinski kutak" još uvijek i svakodnevno se preuzimaju uputstva za stare Bagat šivaće mašine. 

Bernina Drive Belts / Bernina Motor V Belt / Bernina Belts Sizes Types

See the dimensions and sizes of the Bernina vintage belts in the attached tables. Of course I could not describe all the models, if you have a suggestion feel free to write a comment, there is a possibility and error in the dimensions, I write all this based on my own experience, notes and data that I found in the service instructions.
Dimensions are written in millimeters, example 5x441, where 5 is the width V of the belt and 441 is the total outer length of the belt.
Vintage Bernina mainly use V belts, Bernina 930 record use teeth belts, and older models of Bernina 125  used rubber round belt. The rubber round belt is not recommended due to stretching and oscillations during sewing on the machine, the susceptibility to stretching interferes with the proper operation of the sewing machine...etc
