I recently acquired a Singer 301a and am working to supply her with some needed accessories that she didn't come with. I'm having trouble finding a walking foot for her that does not require some sort of modification in order to fit correctly.
The one I bought recently requires cutting out some of the inner curve of the fork that goes over the needle clamp in order to snug up and fit correctly. I also found, upon inspection that my thumbscrew rubs the housing of the walking foot.
When I inquired with the company I purchased it from I was told I could cut out a section of the housing to better accommodate the thumbscrew or just remove the housing altogether. Is that the way is has to be?!
Does anyone know of a particular model to get and where it can be purchased?
Thank you so much,
