The Bernina 530 debuted in 1954 as their first “semi automatic” and laid the groundwork for their domination of the upscale market, the Record series are some of the nicest machines ever conceived.
In most respects using one is like using a completely modern machine.
1958 was the last year year they used a scripted font, and in 1959 they added a ruler gauge on the bed, and brightened up the colours a little. They also changed the stitch width and buttonhole stop control.
We have so many repairs in the shop and machines in the queue that it might be a while before I get to work on restoring this one to like new condition.
