I agree with Steve. Home sewing machine motors are often less than 100 Watts, like 1 light bulb. Commercial machines, OTOH, are bigger motors and use more power, but that's not relevant here.

Very helpful, thanks! So does a "K" designation mean it was made in GB? Mine is a coffin top, that was probably the kind that can also be used in a treadle, as it has the holes for a belt.

Singer 128 attachments, vs. other vintage Low Shank.

I was messing with the old HC 28 (Great Britain), and put a modern swiveling foot on it. It did ruffling all by itself! Problem is the feed dogs are shorter, and don't come back as far under the...

CD,I did try it bit on a Singer which requires a lot of hand, eye, and foot coordination. Next time I'll try it on one of the 2 treadles that have built in anti-reverse treadling features.
