Welcome to the Quilting Board!
HELP! I'm wondering if any of you have a great idea for finding a feed dog for a Universal Model 5510. I'm guessing it's from the '60's or '70's and was made in Japan for Standard Sewing Equipment Corp. I posted separately under the machine name (pics are there), but thought I should post here too. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Thanks Miriam. Here are some pics. Universal 5510 Pictures:
I looked through hundreds of pictures of feed dogs for sale. This one is the closest I could come and it looks very similar to what is in my machine. It says it's for a Bernina but doesn't list any other applications. Is there any way to know if it'll work?

Here's a pic of my dog:
Is that rust on there or dried up oil? You may be able to clean it up. Try using a solvent on there - if it dried up oil it will dissolve. If it is rust you need to to get some evapo-rust from Harbor Freight or use a little vinegar on a tooth brush and clean it up. You might be surprised how well things can clean up.
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
