I suspect there is something wrong with these drawings from the Singer 1889 attachments manual.
Does anyone have this ruffler and is willing to provide me with good photos the equivalent of the above?

Sorry Richard it's not exactly the same. Mine's from a puzzle box and is from the same era though.

I'm not seeing an image.  I'm not sure what you are asking.  What do you think is wrong? 
Which manual?  I think each of the following have different views on how to use.

If it is what I think you are asking about, there is a video at


There is a thread over on "the other board" by SteveH about model 12 ruffler at
https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage-antique-machine-enthusiasts-f22/singer-model-12-accessories-t222902.html
and a specific post about a ruffler  https://www.quiltingboard.com/6910053-post12.html

A lot of Macybaby's photos over there are missing.  She did a great thread about the Puzzle Boxes, but because of an issue with Photobucket the images aren't there.

I don't know why, but the image disappeared. I have uploaded a new one.

One is showing the same attachment from a different side.  The part that hooks over the needle clamp is shaped a little differently.  Griest was granted several patents December 25,1888 regarding attachments, including two ruffler patents.  US394972 for one like shown in the manual where the fork goes over the needle clamp from the rear.  US394969 is the one where the fork goes over the needle clamp from the front.

The one in the video and the one that Steve shows at https://www.quiltingboard.com/6910053-post12.html are the ones like in your image from the manual.  The video shows many sides  of it and Steve's shows how it would look if it was attached to the machine, looking at it from the needle end (or how it is positioned in the right side of your image.
