Elna Supermatic Elna2 zigzag sewing machine 1958

Surprise gifts are some of the best. Our neighbours at Vintageflathead found this hefty box at a second hand shop and donated it to our collection.  What a great find! What a wonderful present!   
Opening the heavy metal case shows a complete Supermatic Elna2 zigzag sewing machine manufactured in 1958. This two tone green machine is the second version of the Supermatic Elna2. Much larger than the earlier Grasshopper and huge compare to the little Lotus! This is a full zigzag machine. Drive is supplied by a rubber wheel that develops a flat spot. This machine does have the flat spot, but is is not too bad, so this machine stitches well enough, although a little noisier than intended.
