Hi all
Hope you can help me. I got a Pfaff Tipmatic 1027 on Freecycle yesterday, after many hours fixing the tension, cleaning it up etc I now have it working, this has given me time to investigate what feet came with it, I have been able to identify the buttonhole foot and possibly a flat felling foot but the others I am not so sure of. Any ideas?
Buttonhole


Flat Felling


Mystery 1


Mystery 2


Mystery 3



I would be very grateful for any help. The machine did not come with a manual and the only manual I have tracked down online was the repair manual (which was useful for fixing the upper tension plates)

Thank you!

Mystery #2 is just a clear plastic foot so you can see thru to what's happening on the other side.

Mystery #1 I think is a cording foot.  I could be wrong on that one tho.

Mystery #1 looks like an adjustable blind hem foot.
Mystery #2 might be an applique foot.
Mystery #3 looks like a free motion foot.
Not completely sure, 'cause I have a kenmore with only, like, 4 different feet.  Wink

flat fell foot is actually a rolled hem foot.

mystery #1 is a bias binding foot

mystery foot #2 is a clear straight/zig zag standard foot. common foot only in clear acrylic. nice foot to have.

mystery foot #3 - my guess is a shirring or gathering foot if it looks like you can slide fabric into the actual foot.

Thank you all so much for your help! I knew I would get the help I needed here  Grin I used the hemming foot for the first time and I love it! I had one for my old machine but never bothered to find out what it was for. Now to find a reason to use the others... Roll Eyes
