I don't sew I make gear!

I was recently given this wonderful old Necchi thread injector with which I will be repairing and making all sorts of hiking/hammocking gear. I very quickly serviced it, but need to take some time to show it more love by giving it a proper cleaning. It is a Necchi BU Series MIRA (the one BEFORE the Wonder Wheel that could do fancy stitches) that makes this machine dated from about early to mid 1950s.

Here I am fixing the strap on my sons school case... I really don't know why I waited so long to get a thread injector. This is far easier and far more fun than doing the same thing by hand.
