    For those of you who are FW Fanatics and haven't checked out the pictures on the Vintage thread, here are some of my FW attachments, including the elusive Penguin walking foot :thumbup:

    Interesting! I have a FW, but I don't have any of these attachments. Thanks for sharing these pictures and information.

    These are a little more uncommon then the usual ruffler, binder, wide and narrow hemmers, and buttonhole makers that seemed to come in the oblong green boxes. If you need pictures of those I can post those as well.

    I have the zig zagger attachment but am still looking for the original walking foot. I finally picked up one of the tables and it is in great shape. My ultimate wish is to find the Featherweight cabinet but as they were expensive even in the 1950`s, most people did not buy them and they are very hard to find and pricey if you do.

    Will regular "low shank" feet fit the featherweight?

    Thank you for the info. I thought they would. I have lots of low-shank feet from a Pfaff 130 I have.

    I swap feet back and forth all the time. You can also buy an adapter which works with the flat clip on feet so you don't have to tire yourself :lol: screwing them in.

    I would love a card table, but haven't seen one reasonable enough, tho I've sen a couple off ebay almost cheap enough :-)

    I've never even seen a cabinet do you have a link to a picture for us?

    If anyone is interested there is a real FW Fanatics website. I haven't been there for quite a while but they love them as much as we do.

    PS thanks about Sugar Ray, he adopted us the 2nd weekend of Feb at a campout and we just got back form his first planned campout, I'll try to get some pix up, there's one I have to snag off the Internet that someone else took :D He spent the whole road trip in my lap and at 14 lbs it means my circulation went dead a few times :-)
