    MY 'Goodie Store' Find!
    A Singer Not sure the Model but it uses 'cogs'
    I have a lot of 'cogs' just not the right ones! It sews just fine and the one cog it has is for zigzag.
    If anyone knows anything about this machine please let me know! Lori. K. icon17 8-)

    I have had one of these machines since 1960's when I bought it new. Works good. I still have the cams & the owners manual. Any questions, pm me.

    Congratulations! You have a Singer 403A. They are great machines. I am still sewing on my late Mother's 1956 model. You can find sets of the "cams" as they are called, for sale on e-bay. If you are looking for attachments, you want the ones for slant-shank.

    These 'cams' are call black 'top hat' cams. I have seen them a lot on SewItForSale and other Yahoo! selling sites. Try 'googling' and you will come up with lots of sites.

    This is a great find! :) I actually prefer this model to the 401 - the stitch selector knobs get gunked up and sticky pretty fast on the 401 and the 403 doesn't have this issue. :)

    You can get huge sets of those "top hat" cams an attachments on eBay for pretty cheap prices if you buy the sets intended for Touch & Sews and not look only at the ones that mention 401/403 in the title. The white cams in those sets won't work, but the black top hats will and so will Touch & Sew feet and attachments. Those can sell for almost nothing, sometimes, while the ones specified for 401 or 500 models can go for crazy prices. :)
