Default vintage presser foot, please help identify

This foot appears to go to one of my vintage machines but it's totally unfamiliar to me. It showed up on the floor today when I was going thru a pile of sewing stuff and I honestly don't have any idea where it came from. I own 3 vintage Berninas and the first New Home MemoryCraft 7500 from the later 1980s; this foot -- or part of a foot -- doesn't look familiar to those. I feel like I have a gremlin in my house, Help!

It is called an "Attachment Foot" and comes in a few versions. It can be used by itself, for quilting or possibly with an underbraider which is attached to the bed. Frequently, I've found, that the Attachment Foot is missing in sets that have the hemmers or other pieces. I'm guessing that the attachments got separated from the machine and it was on the machine.

Some have a D-shaped slot for the pieces that attach to it and some have circle slot. Some links for instructions. First is the pages for the instruction, then the page for the Attachment Foot and then the pdf for the instructions.I think I have seen them for a slant shank and maybe a high shank, but yours looks to be for a low shank.

Well, how wonderful!!
You are a fountain of information and it's all exactly what I needed, Janey! Thank you so very much for including all the links, I can't wait to really study them. The piece that attaches looks familiar and is probably in a box here somewhere; that will be fun to find. I just knew some wise guru here would be the best resource available; thank you, thank you!

I thought there was another version for the slot shape and found it at http://www.thesewbox.com/2009/04/att...t-hemmers.html
