    Todays haul from the goodie shop

    Went to the goodie shop today and rooted through his boxes of old feet and attachments.

    Here's a pic of all the goodies with my #1 Singer 66 Treadle:


    Here's a close up of the regular feet:

    I have: low shank, straight stitch: a slotted foot marked 121259 SIMANCO U.S.A, a cording or zipper foot (?) with a guide - the number on it is: 93-847600-00 no makers name, a fabric guide with a large thumbscrew - fits my 9W-7, and a high shank very large ZZ foot with a very wide, about 8mm needle slot, a steel case latch, and a slant shank snap on satin foot ( not shown-it's on the 401A ).

    And here's a close up of what I think are back clamp Singer 66 feet and attachments:

    I have a ruffler w/ SINGER on it, tucker, quilting foot with guide, straight stitch foot #32601, hemmer foot #28789, adjustable hemmer, and a binder. Can anyone confirm these are for a back clamp Singer 66?

    Here's a pic of the slotted foot on my 66:

    And a composite of four angles:

    I have no idea what this Singer foot is for. It works really good though. Anybody know what it's for?


    All in all a good haul.

    Wow!! You made a haul.... and I'll be watching to see that that foot is for. I don't think I've ever seen one of those.

    Yes, Joe, the feet in question are just like my back clamp Redeye's feet. Yours are much shinier, though, and you have more of them than I do.

    On your next trip, will you see if he has any bobbin cases from donor machines? I still need one for the 1978 MW. It has borrowed one from the 1950s Admiral, but it's not nice just to keep it. The Admiral is too pretty - it needs to be complete (when it gets a good foot pedal). Not going to worry about that until I take it apart.

    I agree...the backclamps are for a 66.
    The last one is interesting, have not seen one before...it almost looks like part of a walking foot...
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    irishrose,
    Your MW should take a Class 15 bobbin case I think. If so then Sew-Classic has them. I've bought bobbin cases from her for a couple of our machines. They work good. They are actual Japanese made rather than Chinese.

    irishrose and Charlee,
    Thanks for ID'ing the 66 feet. Now I'm all set if I ever get one with the back clamp system.

    I think the slotted foot goes with the Singer faggoter (sp?). There are 3 pieces with this item--the bar where you can wind thread around some prongs, the foot that goes over the prongs (which I think you have), and a sliding thing on the bar to help get the thread off the prongs. It is used to make decorative lace-type things for clothing, etc. The foot is one thing that seems to be missing most from the pieces I see on Ebay. Go to www.april1930s.com and the manual section to see what the faggoter looks like. They are very expensive on Ebay--I've seen one they were asking $325 for but it was the complete set.
    She who dies with the most fabric didn't sew fast enough!

    I don't know what the intended purpose of the foot is but I think it would work dandy for sewing over the welts on blue jeans.

    That is what I was thinking. Kind of like a walking foot. It looks like a pair of welded together skis.

    Linda - K.,

    Thanks, that is exactly what that foot is. I printed the manual and will keep my eyes for the rest of the pieces.
