Default Phoenix 482 missing power supply

My sister-in-law has a Phoenix 482 since the 1960s. It was stored for a number of years and when she got it out of storage the power supply and foot peddle had gone missing. Any ideas where to acquire a replacement? Contact port has 3 flat pins instead of the more common round so generic styles won’t work.

A picture of the machine and the connector on the machine would help. Here are Janey's aka OurWorkBench, instructions for posting pictures:

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of quilt block ID?

Another way to post pictures can be found at 2021/2022, 2.5” Birthday Swap
And how to use an ipad to post pictures can be found at Uploading photos

Or simply - Make sure pictures are smaller than 2MB
Click on red "Reply" button
Click on the paper clip icon
Click browse - choose picture/s. (only 5 allowed per post)
Once they show up as being loaded, Scroll over to the right side and click on "Upload"
After the pictures show up as being attached, you can close that window and go back to the screen to finish posting your post.

This is the only picture of her machine I have at the moment, but it is the key to understanding what I am searching for. Sorry I didn't post it before but I am new to the group and couldn't get it to work until someone kindly gave me some pointers.

Welcome to Quilting Board.

Ouch! that is going to be hard to find.

I was about to give up. I had found https://www.naehmaschinenverzeichnis...hinen/phoenix/ which showed a couple of machines with that kind of plug. Thinking that you would need to go to some German sites, I decided to try one more thing. I did an image search for a site specific for "lead cords" and found what I think may work for this machine. It is a Pfaff cord that looks to be the same configuration https://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/p...-332003-12.php Then when I put lead cord 70-332003-12 in a google search I came up with a Canadian site http://www.smscanada.com/viewproduct.php?ID=5196 however, you will need to find a dealer near you. I did a search on that site and it looks like there might be another one in white that would work - 90-223010-23. Once you have a number, you can search by that number and 'lead cord' as it looks like there may be some other places that have it.

Janey - Neat people never make the exciting discoveries I do.

PS - Thank you, Joe for posting how to post pictures.

Thank you SO much for this information. If we can find a power supply that fits adding a foot pedal shouldn’t be too hard.

Here's one I found on Ebay that might work. https://www.ebay.com/itm/16560229869...QAAOSwPNti5IH4
