    a while back i bought a box of sewing machine feet for $3 at a thrift store. but, some of them, i can't identify at all!

    this is the first one. it has measurements/increments on it in two places, from 0-8. those measure out from the left side. also, the larger measured piece has a part that moves up and down with the needle.

    i don't have a clue what it is! have any of you seen anything like this before?

    thanks in advance for your help!

    I'm not positive, but I think I saw something similar on a sewing show that was used to make tucks. Have you tried sewing with it?

    Looks a bit like a pleating foot to me.. but that's really a guess.

    Go to the "Virtual" section on here and check out "Vintage Sewing machine Shop"--I'm sure you will get the answers you need.

    You should ask Charlee or Lostn51. They both know a lot about attachments. Lostn51 has the Vintage Singer Topic Site.

    Charlee is also on there with tons of info!

    looks like something along the line of a ruffler or tuck foot to me also.

    It kinda looks like a buttonhole maker.

    Tucker gets the prize!! If it was a ruffler it would have a huge cog on it to do its business.

    That's what I'm thinking. Either tucks or gathers.
