Default 1950s Visetti (Japan): Walking Foot?

Hello. I'm relatively new to machine sewing. I have an old Visetti made in Japan "Deluxe ZigZag" machine that I'd like to get a walking foot for. The machine has a low shank with 7mm wide opening in the needle plate. I've attached two pics. Can anyone point me to a walking foot that would work? Thank you.

Here's a UK website on Visette machines that might help. I wasn't sure which one was yours, but there were some walking feet listed. https://www.sewingparts.co.uk/machin...straight5.html

Thank you Patrice. I'll take a look. BTW, my friend just had a baby boy. His name is Cash! :-)

Awwww. Cute. My Cash was a little long haired dachshund who lived to be 18 years old. He's been gone for a while, but I still miss him daily.

Got some great news that might help others. Looking at the add-on walking foots available, most of them are pretty much the same. This morning I went and bought the Singer "Even Feed Foot", part 2500271.06 from Michael's. At first it would not fit my Visetti's square-ish presser bar. A little filing with a small file took care of that. I filed down the back white plastic face that the arrows are pointing to, thereby simply widening the area that goes around the machine's presser bar, making it fit perfectly. Don't need to go fast. A little filing, check if it fits, etc... Now I have a walking foot for my vintage made-in-Japan machine.
