    Can you identify these parts?

    I bought this box of attachments at a sale this weekend. Hoping I can use them on either my hand crank or treadle.

    BUT, some of the parts I do not recognize. I have seen boxes of these things for years, and have NEVER seen these pieces.

    Jacquie, the box of attachments are for a White, Standard, National, New Home, Davis, Kenmore, Free-Westinghouse...top clamp.
    The second photo is an edgestitcher, an underbraider, and I'm not sure what the hinged one is, a part of a ruffler maybe? but the first two are for a machine with a shuttle (slide plate).
    I would guess that the Singer tool is a seam ripper. Never have seen one like that...it's neat tho!
    That last photo is, I think, a pintucker attachment, again for one of the top clamp machines.
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    The slide plate pieces might...do you have a shuttle machine? If so, see if the fit in place of the front slide plate...

    That little green Singer piece is a seam ripper/threader. I found one with my treadle, but the threader part was broken. Pretty nifty all the things that they came up with!
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    The green item is a seam ripper and threader, as the writer above identified. I was one of the very few lucky people, who got replacement pieces for my threader when I found it, and I love it!

    I think that several of the other feet are types of hemmers and tuckers. Most older machines came with quite an assortment. Yours, however, are for older machines, as you can tell by the way they attach at the bottom of the foot.

    Charlee knows better than I. I believe the first one in the second photo is a zigzagger. Another of my machines has that on a foot. The fabric goes between the "S" loops, and as you sew it zigzags the FABRIC with your straight stitches. another site showed how it worked on a treadle machine, and the demonstrator said that she would never use it for any length of time as keeping the fabric correctly oriented was very difficult to do.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    Reading this post was an answer to prayer! THIS is what I need for my National VS. Thank you. :-)
