Default Singer model 756 manual plus throat plates

I just got the machine in a desk/cabinet. I do NOT want the machine or the original things for it. Is there someone here who would advise me as to what to do with these items. The machine has no power cord/foot petal and has seen drier days aka rust.
I needed a desk/cabinet for my embroidery machine and this desk will be much better than a folding table.

Offer them on Craigslist or take them to a thrift store.

OK, did not know if anyone with the machine might want them. They will go to a thrift store.
Thank you for the reply

You might wait 48 hours and see if anyone here wants them.

The parts for the chain stitch function are always sought after and are hard to find. I think the throat plates are the same for many models, but there's many different covers for the bobbin case.

What are the parts for the chain stitch, a feed dog, the bobbin case cover and another small piece. Got them.
Guess I should have said feed dog plates and not throat plates.

I have for a long time use the term needle plate, but I know the experts say throat plate, and I come across both. I think the chain stich parts are the special throat plate and a bobbin cover. I found this on fleabay, but I noticed there's at least two types of throat plates and covers for the bobbin case.

farmquilter, I'm sure what you have are throat plates.

According to the manual for the 756 that I downloaded from singerco.com lists the chainstitch fittings as:
Thread Guide,
Bobbin Case Cover
Throat Plate.

The throat plates for the series 737_750_755_756_758_770_775_778 are listed as:
General Purpose Throat Plate,
Straight Stitch Throat Plate,
Chainstitch Throat Plate
Feed Cover Throat Plate

The plate that covers the bobbin is generally called a Slide Plate or just "Slide," not only for this series, but also for the 66-1 and 201 among others, even though they might have some description in front of the word "slide."

The terms confused me a bit too, because I thought the bobbin cover or slide plate would be the same, but for the chain stitch there's an extra small cover that goes over the bobbin case, and it's under the basic slide plate. I have seen one type in metal, and one in white plastic.
