I am very excited about my luck thrift purchases, particularly my Nelco Amica sewing machine. Heck, I’m ecstatic about my sewing machine. It’s the first one I ever bought for myself and I wasn’t counting on it working when I chanced buying it. But not only does it work, but it’s a champ. Sews through anything without a complaint. Made in Italy, I’m guessing 1960s based on the instruction booklet art.
Update 1/2006: I no longer have this machine.
Update 3/2013: You can now get the manual here: https://www.little-package.com/shop/nelco-amica-user-manual
