    I would like to see it on the machine also. And then I would like to see a sample of what it does.

    i found a similar attachment in GW for my original Bernina 830. It was in the box and everything, and yes, it is an attachment to be able to serge with a regular sewing machine.

    It's a stitch selector.
    Used for machines that only did straight stitches.
    Montgomery Wards had one that was a funky tanish color. Could never make it work right.
    Probably late 50's, early 60's machines...I was nine & the machine was probably 10 years old...I was born in 1952.

I assumed it came with one of the Brother's but can't be sure. Do any of you know what this part is used for?

    I have one of these for my older Bernina, it is called a Cut'n'Sew. It attaches like a walking foot and will trim off excess seam allowance as it overcasts the edge. Mine has a special pressure foot to use it with.

    Photos of Side Cutter for Pacesetter by Brother, PC-7000

    Hi all, here are photos of the side cutter for my Brother Pacesetter PC 7000. I have never used it and don't see a need for it since I have an Elna Lock serger that does what this attachment does.

    To attach the side cutter you have to open a door in the plate and insert the cutter into the opening in the plate. Then you tighten the screw on the cutter. To start using the cutter, cut the edge of the fabric 3/4" then hold both threads tight under presser foot then guide fabric through side cutter. You can choose 4 different stitches with this device.
