Plates - Front or Face Plates

Other Types of Plates

I have divided up the Plates pages, for ease of use. I have lots of plates for all manner of machines. Some are very good, and some are very poor, see the descriptions. The image is always of the item - all are usable, but may need cleaning. If you are contemplating buying a machine with the bobbin plate missing, please be aware that they are exceedingly hard to find, and not getting any easier....
PLEASE NOTE - the images on this page are not to scale...

Page refurbished, re-upholstered, and re-invigorated, 7th June 2015, and inspected with a mildly critical eye, May 2017

Face or Front Plates

These cover the needle bar and generally sit on the left-hand end of the machine as you look at it. Some are also available in sets, please see the links HERE
Tension Plates (little plates which cover the oiling points above the tension units) are at the bottom of the page

Plates on this page are arranged roughly by shape, with the older types at the top of the page.. If you are not sure if a particular plate will fit your machine, please ring 01508 548137 or email I am happy to send measurements or a tracing of the plate if required.
With screws if shown...
