Gorgeous Vigorelli ZZ/A Robot, made in Italy by a former Necchi employee. It cleaned up beautifully and has the cam stack, motor, and a light with a broken cover. The bed is cracked, and the wire for the motor needs redone. There is no pedal. It appears to have been removed none to gracefully from a cabinet. Everything moves freely. There are no accessories or manual. Please keep in mind that this machine is very heavy.

Any "discoloration" in the photos is a reflection. Except for the crack in the bed, the finish is clean and in excellent condition.

It's a gorgeous machine, but I just don't love it enough to deal with its problems. I'd rather focus on my older ones.

Totally my kind of machine - but I'd wait for a better example and keep that one for parts.

Again, too bad Ontario is so far from Idaho [frown]

As for the cracked bed, any metal workers feel free to contradict me, but I suspect it could be drilled and "sistered" as long as there is space to put a piece underneath, and then the remaining visible crack either ignored or filled with a matching paint.
