I'm pretty sure they are Singer assessories. They came along with a completely unrelated machine. They have gold lettering and pictures and the numbers are higher than fashion disc numbers in any Singer manual I've seen: 102, 104, 105, 106, 108, 109 and 110. I can't find any information on the internet. I'm stumped. Are they "extended" Touch and Sew discs? Or other? What machines do they fit? I'm hoping one you Singer-philes will recognize them. I'm struggling with photo link, hope it happens. If not, I'll keep trying. click here'/>

I'm gonna hope that one of you can recognize these from my description and go on. I'm too tired to upload.

Are they flat or are they the "tophat" cams?

Last November, on a different forum a user asked the same question. Although she didn't receive a definitive answer, she did post some pictures of the cams-- most of the numbers match yours. Are yours the same?

Post pictures or continue to guess.

You could go to the Singer Company website and download manuals to see what is listed for the suspect machines. You do not have to print, just download and read.

I looked at the ones from the blog that andye linked to and they look somewhat similiar to discs that came with the Singer that I got when I was a child. I am pretty sure that mine were not as fancy as the ones shown, mine were solid black, but the stitch was shown the same way. They were the precursor to electronic machines. You would put the disc into the machine, at the top of the machine where you put your thread there was a hinged opening, and you could put your disc in there. Then, to do the stitch indicated would adjust for zigzag, and the disc would determine the stitch, depending upon how it was shaped. The regular zigzag disc would have regular indentations, but, for say the hemming disc, the indentations would be for every 4th stitch or so. For a fancier stitch, there would be gradations of how far off straight so you could do fancier stitches. When I learned to sew, almost 50 years ago, I was instantly hooked, and this was the first machine my parent's bought me. I sewed a lot of stuff on that machine. Thanks for reminding me of my beloved machine!

Yes, those are my cams. But no answer on that thread.
