    I appreciate your words of caution; however, the walking foot made for my machine, and bought at a dealer, breaks consistently. The little arm that goes over the needle bar is plastic and eventually it wears out. I found one on line that has a metal arm. So, am giving that a try and so far so good. But, Holice, I always appreciate your comments and expertise.
