Going through my sewing accessories, I discovered I have 8 duplicate Singer top hat cams (for Singer 401,403, 500, 503).

These are the cam #s:
0 (zigzag) , 1(arrowhead), 2 (scallop), 4 (solid scallop), 5 (banner), 7 (icicle), 11 (ribbon), 22 (stretch/overcast)



Note the "0" zigzag cam essential for zigzag on 403s and 503s - sometimes this is missing. And also note cam #22 the "stretch stitch" or overcast cam.  This works great for overcasting with an overcasting foot (either vintage or modern).  See the following YouTube for how it works: 


I
 will mail priority mail.  $10.00 postage included.

Please PM me if you are interested or have any questions. I will update this message when they are sold.

Thanks.

The cams have been spoken for.  Thank you all for your interest.

Cari - I appreciate the info since I'm not familiar with the later models and all the different types of cams.  How do you keep it all straight?  Maybe the beef stroganoff is healthy for the brain?  Oh - I did make this last weekend and it was so yummy - glad for your inspiration - but it didn't result in any sewing machines! [smile]

I'm glad you liked the stroganoff. [smile]

I googled it lol. I can't keep it all straight in my head either, not with my one remaining brain cell. The cam info I found here -
https://www.singersewinginfo.co.uk/pattern_cam_list/

Though it may not be a complete list. I found out earlier today that the flat cam list is quite incomplete.
