Default Parts

I purchased a treadle at a yard sale. The lady said, "here, take this too." It was a bag of "parts". I no longer have the treadle, but have re-discovered the parts. Some of them, look like they belong to something other than a sewing machine, but I am not sure. Thought I would share. I still have two treadle's so might keep some of it, but wonder if anyone is interested in the other parts? The ugly box is what they were in. Don't know if that is important....I think it is trash. :-/

Now crossing my fingers I can post. I normally respond to other's posts. 8-)

Yes they are sewing machine parts and feet, don't throw them away. Macybaby can probably tell you what everything is.

Almost all are for a Standard Rotary. The older "slim" version.

Many of the parts say EJ Toof, New Haven CT. Some include a number, I.e. 4 and 5. A couple say Standard.

I don't know what a spider is. Do you have a photo?

What a cool set of extras. I love the two shiny black wrenches. I think I have to of those extra feet too. Mine came out of an old treadle also. I showed them to my Mom she smiled as she remembered using some of them making clothes for us when we were youngsters.

That type of feet (top clamp) come in many variations, so you have to get the correct one for the machine. Usually it's manufacturer specific, not model specific. Ones for a White won't fit a Standard or National, though they look very similar. Either test fitting or measuring is the only good way to tell exactly what they fit.

These four are not interchangeable between manufactures. They are Standard, National, New Home (older) and White.


The feet are almost always interchangeable between rotary and VS machines of that manufacturer. The shirr plate and underbraider are not, so if you see a set marked "Rotary" it's because of these items, not the feet.


The earlier Standard is a slimmer machine, and takes a bobbin case that has a solid pin. The spider (the half round item above the bobbins ) also has the solid pin. That, along with the needle plate to the right convert the machine to chain stitch.

The later model is not as thin (refered to as Stout) and takes a bobbin case with a hollow center, and the spider also has a hollow center. That machine takes a larger needle plate too.

Standard "slim" version



Standard "stout" version (later model)



And the two bobbin cases - stout on the left, slim on the right. Though the bobbins look different, they are interchangeable, and tests have shown a Singer class 15 bobbin will also work.

Macybaby, Thank you for the photos and the explanations. That was great for me to see. I know nothing about any of the parts, nor am I likely use them etc. I do not have any sentimental feelings of keeping these parts. I will keep the two "wrenches" but the rest......are you interested in them?
