    Here's another Singer 27 question. I have a Singer 27 er... "portable" electric machine. That has the old spoked wheel, belted motor... so I'm taking all that off and returning it to a treadle cabinet in the future. Unfortunately, I did not get any attachments with the machine.

    Does anyone know which attachments are the ones for use with them? I see that the 'puzzle' box attachment appear to have several different sized hemmers or something. Plus they appear to be for treadle machines. Are there 27 model, specific attachments? Will any "Rotary Attachment" box of parts work?

    Thanks for the advice.

    BTW, I post this as a seperate inquiry, and those of us with old vintage sewing machine questions might consider doing the same. The reason being that our main thread of 700 some odd pages cannot be searched to pinpoint where in all those pages... is the info we need. But individual messages will show up on a search and are easily read (short!).

    I have a couple of those "puzzle boxes" for my 27/28 treadles, plus a bunch of loose attachments. It took a lot of work to complete the boxes and every time I see a complete one on eBay, I still want to buy it. :)

    Modern low-shank feet work just fine, so my 27 had a Lucite 1/4" foot and a nylon/metal darning foot mixed in with her collection of era-appropriate feet. :)
