Pedals appear new, but I have not tested, nor do I know what machines the plug fits.

Pedals are nla. Other items below still available.

Hello Lori - are you selling the 'lot' or individually? I am fixing up a neighbor's White 1514 and she wondered about a buttonholer. Figured a Greist would fit/work with this model (as the White is low shank)?  Thanks for any info!

Wow, Mike, that is a gorgeous machine!

Lori’s buttonholer says for zigzag machines, so I don’t know that it would mate with that SS machine...? 

What a beautiful blue though. I also have a blue white like that - mine is a powdery, metallic blue.

I had a few different Greist, and all were labeled for brand/class of machine. One that fits a Singer may fit a White.

And to answer your question, Mike, lot vs individual, no limit on # of lots. They are fcfs, postage based on flat rate box. I take PayPal and Venmo.

Yes, gorgeous clone!

Yikes - can I even read?  [wink].  
Thanks Cecelia - yes, it was rescued out of her barn. A true joy to bring back to life - it was a little dirty and rusty! White 1514-3.jpg  White 1514-2.jpg  White 1514-1.jpg

Ah..... ok, thanks for the tip!  I actually have a second Singer 160506 black buttonholer that might work for her (just needs some cleanup). Never thought of that...

I've always been interested in the Greist - never owned one though. Great 'lot' you have there!  Thanks again!

- Mike

Here's a shot of the box bottom, with the different model numbers and brands each fits.

Mike, back in the day Greist actually made most of the feet and attachments no matter what name was on them.

Mike, is your black buttonholer the one in the black "treasure chest" box? If so, do you have the manual for it? "We've" been looking for one for the files here. The black box bh is really the same as the green, but I've heard the black box one came with Featherweights.

Hi Lori - no, I think mine is just the run-of-the-mill?  My second one is like this as well (with no manual).  Good to know there is something else out there to grab if I see it. Is the manual cover different as well?

I have no clue! I think part of the reason for a manual from the black bh box was to check for a production date.

Hi I have one of the black box buttonhole attachments which I think did indeed come with one of the Featherweights. Pretty sure it has a manual in it. I should be able to find it by later this week and will see if the instructions show a different date or content from the one that go with the green ones

I found the buttonhole attachment in the black treasure chest case and it does have the manual inside. I also retrieved one of the buttonholers in the standard green case with its manual. The former arrived with a 1949 221-1 and the latter in the case of a 1955 222K. Of course they could have been purchased at other times and for other machines but that's how I got them.

The manual from the black plastic case is missing the outer cover but otherwise is identical in content, copyright date etc. to the other one. There is a slight difference in the language of the copyright statement which leads me to believe one might have been for the U.S. market and the other to be sold in Canada or abroad. I checked all the other pages and there is no difference.

Cheers
