    Does anyone know what this is?

    I have searched high and low in my sewing machine manuals and on the internet. Also on the Brother website. I can't figure out what this part is for! The good news is I found a walking foot so I am very happy about this. I have two Brother embroidery sewing machines and an Elna Lock serger. I don't know if this part goes to one of my machines. 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?

    Thanks,

    Sande

    ​It looks like it might be to adjust the width on the stitches pictured? I have no idea what machine it would fit or how you would use it.

    OMG! I found another sewing manual for my Brother PC-7000 Pacesetter sewing machine! And guess what, the part is pictured in the manual as a Side Cutter to be used with presser foot "S"! I guess that solves that mystery!

    Glad you found the sewing manual - amazing how much info is in there! Especially when one reads them!

    That should make your day - and now we know what it is, too!

    Could you show us a picture of it mounted on your machine? I can't quite visualize where it would go. Thanks.

    You are right, it is a side cutter. Back in the day, Brother advertised that they had a sewing/serger combo. This attachment was the "serger" part.

    That makes sense to me as you can clearly see the cutting blade attached to this piece. I knew it had something to do with serging because I could see the blade but it's so big that I can't quite picture it on the machine. Maybe the pic makes it look bigger than it actually is. Tks for finding out what it is though & letting us know. Curiosity gets me every time.
