This is the third edition of “Domestic Sewing Machine Presser-Feet”. It is available at http://www.watkinsr.id.au/PresserFeet.html
Although there are many explanations of how to use presser-feet and attachments, I have found no information about how they work. This article is a detailed explanation of the walking, tuck-marker, zig-zag, buttonhole and ruffler attachments.
In addition, there is an (hopefully correct!) examination of early (up to about 1915) Singer style sets, which are often in "puzzle" boxes.

Just skimmed the new version -- that looks to be an incredible reference, Richard.  Good work!

I should have mentioned:  the period at the end of the sentence became part of the URL.

This is so great. Thank you for working so hard on it.
I cannot believe you have finally answered my burning question of "why are the screwdrivers always on the "wrong" side of the Style 11 box?" Really, so great.
