Y S Star Zigzagger
This intriguing little box was sitting in a charity shop waiting for me. The dodgy spelling is a bit of a giveaway - I did a bit of research later and found out that it was manufactured in Japan.
Inside was the zigzagger. Nothing dodgy about that. A good bit of sturdy metal equipment.
It came with four little metal templates, three of them double ended and one single ended. The different templates set the zigzagger for the whichever one of the seven different stitches you want to use.
The needle passes through the wide hole in the black plate at the front of the zigzagger.
The underneath of the black plate is ridged, enabling it to grip the material firmly.
Tomorrow's photographs will show the zigzagger attached to the machine....
