Just purchased a rebuild Husqvarna 6440 sewing machine on ebay and it arrived smelling like mildew. How can I get rid of the smell?

Mildew grows on organic things like food or wood. Sewing machine is all metal. So maybe what you smell is the box it came in & the oils they use in sewing machines.

Let it sit out for a day or two. Clean it with a damp cloth. Sewing machines are made of metal and plastic. Neither should retain any smell for long and neither absorbs mildew spores. Are you sure it's mildew you're smelling? Maybe it's oil.
