A possible generalization led to something curious. Take all circles that are tangent to two of the sidelines BC, CA, AB.  Four of these circles pass through the Feuerbach point, the incircle and 3 others. The centers of those 3 others are collinear.

Does this work if the Feuerbach point is replaced with some other point on the incircle?

It is Another "Seven Circles Theorem" !

The "Seven Circles Theorem" states:

Let a,b',c, a',b,c' be a closed chain of six circles,
all toouching a base circle w[omega], and suppose that
their points of contact with w are six distinct points
A,B',C,A',B,C' respectively. Then, subject of a certain
extra condition to be discussed below, AA',BB',CC' are concurrent.
