Non-Singer Odd Shank Feet

- for Wheeler and Wilson, Willcox and Gibbs, etc..
These have shank systems other than the Singer Low, Slant, and High, and Back-clamp feet. Almost all the early manufacturers had patented feet-attaching systems of their own. Some of these are undoubtedly superior, but did not catch on for some reason...
Now the only common "different" system is the Bernina cone-and-lever, almost all else being Low (domestic) or High (industrial) shanks...
See the links above for pages of all these types. Please quote the Stock number when ordering...
Mostly not repeatable, so get it while you can..
