    Wheeler Wilson attachments

    This is a really neat set! I've seen pictures of the main foot on a W8 - the shirr plate does line up correctly to be used with the W9. Don't know if the feet would fit as mine needs a bit more tri-flow before the screw will come off.



    This is the attachment foot - with the glass insert (and yes, it is glass!)



    And attached to one of the hemmers.



    I bought the attachments in one auction, and a bunch of misc items along with two bobbins was in a second, and I won that one too - the glass part was in with the second group. When I see unique items, I like to check out other listings by the same seller. Though in this case I didn't realize what that bit of glass was until I had it in in my hand.

    This does look like it goes with an older style WW, so I may need to find someone with a machine in need of attachments.

    The glass part has two holes, so that would make it the Braider. I find it interesting that the "foot" is refered to as the Cloth Presser.

    Here is a comparison with the WW9 foot - more different than I thought . . .

    And the shirring plate since I left that out of the first picture

    Those are neat. I've made up my mind I'm going to keep my Singer 9W-7 so when I see pics like yours I get real interested.

    After looking around on the needle bar site - it appears the new feet are for a Wheeler Wilson 9, which is slightly different than the D9 (which is the same a the Singer W9).

    The 8 has a hole, but no slide part in the foot.
