A Singer Sewing Machine Attachment - GAUGE PRESSER FOOT Set - which is complete with all the gauges. These pieces are so very tiny and can be difficult to find together, but for your sewing pleasure and collection, you will have the privilege of obtaining the entire set.
This is for a Singer 301, 401, 500, etc. This will not fit a Singer Featherweight.
This Fashion Aid has an accurate set of gauges, marked off into 1/8" lines and numbered. Two are numbered from 1 to 8, one being intended for use at the right of the foot. The other is used at the left, as required. These two long gauges have a very deep side wall and are used when stitching heavy coatings, woolens or padded sections (QUILTS!). If the garment requires stitching on the extreme edge, the gauge is moved over to the edge of the foot, bringing the guide alongside the needle hole. After the first row of stitching has been applied, the gauge is removed and the small toe is clamped into its place. All subsequent rows are stitched with this toe, its deep outer wall riding along the stitching of the last row. This keeps the lines accurate and unwavering and spaces them correctly. The two other gauges, numbered 1 to 6, have successively lower walls. These are used for finer materials. All the gauges are used as guides for edges only, the extra toe always replacing them for subsequent rows of stitching.
