    Please help identify these parts!

    I found these in a box at an estate sale. The thing that looks like a walking foot intrigues me most, but I don't know what the other things are either. Please help!!!

    The thing that looks like a walking foot is a zigzagger. It moves the fabric back and forth for each stitch to make the zigzag.

    I don't know what the plastic thing is. Middle top looks like some kind of combination straight stitch/zipper foot. Top right is an adjustable hemmer. Not entirely sure what bottom middle is....a button foot? For sure not sure what the aluminum/nickle thing is...some kind of a securing joint plate?

    The one at the top with the green dot is a zipper foot, the little silver one with the wide feet at the bottom is for sewing on buttons. The one at the bottom may be a type of gathering foot, I am not sure. The others I don't know. Hope I could help a little.

    Thanks ladies. Once I googled vintage zig zag it lead me to this link and that's what I think this one is. I guess I will need the manual and figure out how it works. It never occurred to me that it wasn't a walking foot and that's what I kept googling before.

    Well, here is my 2 centavos worth:

    That thing that looks like a ZZ might be a blind hem stitcher. I've seen a couple pics and they have that extra thing on the end. I have a couple of the ZZ's and they don't.

    Plastic part to the right of the ZZ'e is part of a "Unique Invisible Zipper" foot kit. We have two and half kits.

    Next to the right is an adjustable zipper, cording, straight stitch foot.

    Next to the right is an adjustable hemmer.

    Bottom middle is a button foot.

    Thing to the bottom right is some sort of mounting bracket.

    I'm rolling with laughter, girls! The object on the lower right has nothing to do with sewing. We should run a contest to identify it.

    Aw shucks, I'll tell. It is a cable clamp from the inside of an electrical box; the type of box you have in your walls that hold your electrical outlets. It holds the electrical cable from pulling out of the box and puts that pulling strain on the box not the outlet. This would be from a fairly old box because they haven't used that type in years. Wait, maybe they still sell 'em.

    Glad we could provide your daily amusement...however I don't think any of us said it had anything to do with sewing...

    Oh well now, don't take offense. It is on a sewing board and surrounded by sewing items and she did say she bought it at an estate sale. My wife drags me to those things every week. Stuff gets all jumbled.

    Here's more information than you would ever need about it:

    She said it was in with the items for the machine that she bought at an estate sale...and we all know there are tons of things that have nothing to do with sewing in those cabinets....

    Viking Husqvarna help

    I went to a yard sale and liked this cabinet and want to refinish it. After I got it home looked more closely at what was inside and found that a Viking Husqvarna sewing machine was calling it home. On the machine plate it has 33-10. Serial # 16231-1738 Made in Sweden. Does anyone know any info on this or where to find it? I've googled and searched and can't find a thing. Any help out there would be appreciated. And what do I clean it with? It runs like a dream, nice and quiet and beautiful stitches.Name:  DSCF0595.JPG
