    Question High Shank walking foot

    I brought a high shank walking foot years ago and didn't realize at the time I needed a low shank walking foot for my Necchi sewing machine. Can anyone tell me what sewing machines use a high shank walking foot. I maybe selling this walking foot on this board. But before I do I needed to know what machines use this. Thanks for any feedback.

    My Singer 31-15 uses high shank feet. What were you thinking of price wise?

    Other machines that can use it:
    Necchi BU
    Necchi BU Mira
    Necchi Supernova

    The 9" straight stitch machines like the Brother 1500 and Janome 1600 are high shank machines, but they come with the walking foot.

    I recently bought several low shank feet, thinking I would use them on my Janome 110000SE. But it turns out that one is a high shank machine. I'm taking my Baby Lock Sophia up north with me this spring so that I can use them, since that is a low shank machine.
    Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

    I've been looking (mostly unsuccessfully) for a high shank walking foot for my 70's era Kenmore - let me know if you still have it and are interested in selling!

    Some of the Kenmores from the 60's and 70's and most industrial machines use the high shank attachments.

    shanfurino, there are a couple of problems you may run into if you try to put an even feed on a high-shank Kenmore from that era - the attachment system that has the lever to loosen and tighten the attachments makes it difficult (maybe impossible) to use a modern even-feed type attachment.

    I bought an even feed for my 1803 from the 70's - super-high shank - and the extra long screw you need on some models. But, I can't get around the attachment system, itself, so the foot is still sitting in the drawer several years later.

    i have a high shank walker ordered from a nearby repair shop and am hoping it might work but things aren't looking overly promising. i've started looking at new machines but won't give in just yet

    I still have an adapter if anyone is interested. CHEAP! LOL
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!
