I love my Singer buttonholer in the rose colored "space age"
box, and I have all the metal cams for that one.  BUT, it
does not include a round "eyelet" cam, the closest it comes
is with a 5/16" not-quite-round cam.

I gave my DMIL a 500 series machine and bought the newer
style buttonholer for her years ago.  That version did have
a round eyelet cam.  After DMIL died, we did not find the
buttonholer, so I thought it was long gone, but today while
I was over helping DD with the costume, she was digging
through some drawers in DMIL's sewing table and FOUND THE
BUTTONHOLER!.  So now I have both the older metal cam one,
and the newer version which will let me make better eyelets
in DGD's velveteen Highland dance vests.

And DD will keep the second metal-cam one I bought on eBay.

Congrats Beverly!  What a great find!
My first sewing machine was an old Franklin Rotary from 1908 or something.
I had one of those buttonholers and they are fabulous.  Having seen anything
that could compete until I got the designer SE.

Thanks!  My Singer XL5000 also does buttonholes, but since
it is used for embroidery only, I haven't tested its
buttonholes.  And since I'm perfectly happy with the old
400/500 series attachments I see no reason to switch.

YAY!!!!  That is wonderful!  I bet your DMIL looked down, saw you needed it
and made sure it got found.  ;)  

I'm so tickled you have it now.
