A little bit of a play on words since pretty much any chance I get to indulge in my hobby over the weekend is always the high point, but this time it was the location as well. It was a two hour drive from here to High Point Lake, PA. That's where the seller was with a pile of machines and parts! I've been trying to figure out how to share the spoils, but there's so many bits. I figured I'd just start a new thread and post the parts by type.

I picked up tins full of attachments, card board boxes, gallon zip lock bags. I'll begin with just the loose rufflers, There's one Griest and several Singer and a few unmarked. The odd duck is all by itself at the bottom. I've never seen that one before. Around the rounded end it says Singer, and then trade mark 1876. Above that on a flat spot it also says: Toofs Standard Ruffler.

Some of this stuff I will know, others bits I won't have a clue. If there's something here you've been looking for, let me know. Sure, there's going to be a few things I probably need - but mostly I bought the lot knowing that perhaps some one might be looking for it.

I'll have to look a little closer.

How old is old? lol. Let me know what you're looking for and I'll take a closer look. The old treadle Domestics changed many times but I'm not sure about how much the attachments changed, so if you can narrow it down a wee bit? I have one old "New" Domestic with the funky folding shuttle. =)

Dang Jim, you find the coolest stuff.

I'm going to be looking for top clamp feet for my latest machine, when it comes.  So if you come across any that you don't want to keep as you are sorting thru your haul let me know.

I can't help but wonder, what's in the two cases in the back of your photo?

Wow, great haul, Jim!
What's in the white cardboard box to the left of the New Home tin?

Great haul, Jim.  I've been looking for a few shuttles to finish up my Boye case.  If you have any shuttles or cases numbered 1, 9, 11, 13 or 15 I would be interested.  I'm always interested in the 66-1 back-clamp attachments, too, but I probably have the ones that are in the pile a few times over, so go for it, Blyth! 

One of these days, I'm going to have to pull out all of the top-clamping attachments and tins that I've got and try and get them out of here.  Problem is, I have NO idea what machine(s) they would fit.

Ericka,

The table might help a little with sorting your attachments.

Thanks for the table, Jon.  Maybe one of these days, I'll get the energy to go through those tubs and boxes of top-clampers and do something with them.
