Is there an ankle piece that these feet are attached to? I don't see how you'd attach them to the thumbscrew on the needle bar and get them into the right orientation. I have a practically complete set that doesn't have anything to attach these to so obviously my set isn't complete. Here's an image that isn't mine.

Those are "rotary" attachments. There is a horizontal nut that screws down to hold the feet in place after they slip onto the ankle. I have a whole set of these as well and am familiar with them as my mom's 1956 White had feet like this. I have looked on-line for an ankle attachment so I can use them on another machine to no avail. Has anyone had any luck with this?

Andye, I have another set of feet that will work with the ankle in your "looks like" picture, and it's very different than the one from my borrowed image above. They must have made more than one design.

Shame. I found a more complete instruction book for that Greist set, should you need it.

I don't know if this will be any help to you, but my MiL's 1928 White Rotary has a set of feet just like this. They attach from the front and the screw is on the right.

I have not yet begun to procrastinate

Update: soon I will decide when I will begin procrastinating.

I found one from a site where they say they are in very limited supply. So of course they have a $50 price tag. I may still get it for myself.

Machines were made. way back when, without a standardized foot connector.

So while Singer was doing the low shank side clamp thing, White was doing the low shank bottom clamp thing.

These are not rare.

If you need a set, let me know and we can work something out!
