It's a Necchi Lelia. I think I'll fit a new plug...

Maybe that is a special plug designed by that particular sewing machine manufacturer, in the past there were many non-standard plugs in that business.
What brand is the sewing machine?

Hi, sorry it's difficult to explain. Imagine an IEC extension lead - the female end contains the pins. The socket on the sewing machine is like this (or like the back of a monitor) but accepts a flat euro plug design rather than an iec design...

This was the only image I could find

I think though I'll just buy a matching plug and socket and make a lead from scratch.

That 2-pin appliance plug

is commonly used on class II (reinforced insulation) equipment that does not need protective ground. However, a ordinary grounded mains cable with a 3- pole plug

will fit there.

Thanks but what I mean is that coming out of the machine is a very short lead which ends in an "inline euro socket." I mean that the two pins are surrounded by the female plastic - exactly like the female end of an IEC extension cable, but with 2 euro pins.

I could replace it with an inline IEC socket, but I shouldn't have to - I can't believe nowhere sells these things.

* The "socket" is on a short lead from the appliance, a sewing machine.
