Vintage sewing presser feet and accessories part one: Stuff that won't work on my machines

I have a ton of random sewing machine feet. I'm sure they all do some really cool things that would make difficult projects easier if I knew what to do with them. But I mostly don't, and I'm having a hard time finding a guide that helps, so I thought I'd post them here.

This group consists of ones that are high shank, slant shank or something else that won't attach to my low shank Kenmore or Signature machines. This means that if there's something really cool, I won't get to try it out. *sadface* It also means that if you see something you're needing here, contact me to work something out.

1.This one is easy. Zipper/cording feet. 
2.Some sort of hem guide? Torture device? Is it even all there?

3.Quilting guides? I usually see these attached to other feet instead of solo.

4.Narrow hem foot, but it looks funny...

5.Button feet?

6.More button feet?

7.?????

8.Darning feet.

9.These have a channel to sew over cording(?) and an adjustable guide behind the foot for??? Both are missing the guide screws.

10.I don't know if this is broken or if it's a snap on foot. I also don't know it's special purpose and that makes me sad. I think it's a fairly basic one.

11.?????

12.Looks like a normal zig-zag foot, but a little different from the ones that came with my machines.

13.Sewing guides. These will work on my machines, but I have a few already.
