Straight Stitch Feet

It appears that I opened a Real Can of Worms here.. The original idea that there were two sorts of basic straight stitch feet, with or without hinges, seems simple enough.. Then you look at the feet closely, and yet closer still, and go quietly mad (make that madder).. The tiny differences probably make No Odds, but I do like to know..

If I say what these came from, I'm sure, if not, and you know, please feel free to say

Now, this should be SF002d, but when I looked in the bag this is what I saw

Superficially similar, but Not The Same
Marked (L to R) "H", "511", "VII", and unmarked.. Shapes not at all similar.. Hmm, what gives.. So, I rename these as SF002d(i), SF002d(ii), SF002d(iii) and SF002d(iv) (NOW ALL SOLD)
And all this seems a trifle ridiculous, as they all work and fit the same..
Now, you may have noticed that the types above are not terribly consistently numbered either, but that's not so important - after all, a number is just a number, and if I miss one, no-one fires me. However, I must have had a bad day when I made this bag and gave it all one number - SF001c

These all have one thing in common - they are cast unhinged type feet, probably from early machines of the shuttle persuasion. But the variety is terrifying.. I can see one pair and one trio, otherwise they are all different..
At this point, the idea of photographing, measuring and defining these makes my head hurt.. They are only £1 each, after all.. So yes, these are all SF001c for now.. Perhaps another day

I did try, honestly.. These four, I lined up and wrote notes on for you.. One has a name (Frister and Rossmann) and one a stock number from my Odd Feet stock set..
