    Jazzmyn,

    Serial #: G6559048 is a 127, one of 25,000 allotted 12-11-18.
    I can only suggest one place for a face plate: http://thayerrags.com/ They are members here and I've done business with them. Ask for CD.
    Yes, they have many many different feet and attachments for those machines. I think, but am not positive, they use standard low shank feet and attachments. I'm sure there is someone here how can answer your question definitively.
    If nothing else try the feet and attachments from the model 66 you just bought.

    Serial #: AA916206 is a 66, one of 50,000 allotted 1-26-26.
    It should have red eye decals on it. Be VERY careful how you clean the surface of that machine. Those decals will be very prone to silvering and being removed by overly agressive cleaning. Don't ask me how I know that. There is two tutorial threads here that show how to clean and protect these old machines.
    The first one is a sticky at the top:
    HOW TO CLEAN UP and use a vintage sewing machine - videos by Muv and Fav
    The second one should be:
    Cleaning and repairing the Shellac clear coat on Vintage sewing machine heads

    Thank You Joe for your help. I did go to the link for parts and they don't have the plate that I need but will keep checking back and will send an e-mail to them to see if they might have one somewhere.

    The model 66 does Not have any red eye decals on it anywhere, my guess is that if they were there they were cleaned off long ago. The machine needs cleaning and the cabinet is not in to bad of shape, will watch the two tutorials to see how to clean it.

    Again Thank You for your help,

    not all Singer 66s had lots of decals. I have one somewhere in my shop - that one has reverse. I think it is a Singer 66-15 or something. Nice machine.

    That is the sort of machine I'm looking to put in a treadle base. I've decided I do so want that reverse / back tack feature.

    I was doing some machine quilting on my Singer 66 #2 treadle yesterday and having fits with the lack of space under the presser foot. Does anyone know how high the foot it supposed to be above the bed?
    This one has maybe and I emphasize maybe a quarter inch space. Not much for quilting.

I just told her NOT to throw anything away unless it was a cardboard box

    Thanks for the link--it does look like there were a lot of neat things to see there. It's probably a good thing I've had to work, because a road trip might have gotten me into trouble. Sounds like it is a sad story behind having to get rid of all those machines.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    A parade of machines that are currently being listed on CL in the Sacramento area. Some have beautiful irons and one has a stunning coffin top. Thank God I don't own a basement and the drive is too far.

    While on vacation in Seaside OR, a sad looking Singer 201 in spray painted cabinet with manual and attachments was found by my DH in a thrift shop. The wiring was SCARY! The thrift shop wanted $75. "It works! I checked it by cheating."

    We walked away with a Morse 300 in the original cabinet instead. For $35, we took home a nearly perfect machine with Greist attachments. It now purrs, with new wiring and solder on a few dicey connections. Did I make the right choice?
