    Default For those with industrial machines: feed dog covers?

    I've got a Singer 195K1 sitting in storage at the moment, and I'd love to bring it home to use it.
    My main problem with it is that it'll take the spot currently occupied by my 201K, and it's difficult to do that if I'm unable fmq on it. It'd be great to have it home; it was my great-grandmother's, and my great-grandparents brought it over to Australia in the early 60s after closing her dressmaking factory and moving to follow my grandparents here. It'll need a new motor, but I've got spare bobbin cases, feet and various other spare parts for it, so those are a non-issue. With a servo motor, I suspect that she'll be a great machine for most of my sewing.

    So how difficult is it to get a feed-dog cover for these industrial machines?

    Are you sure the feed dogs doesn't drop? I tried to look it up, but I only got as close as the 196, which is related and can drop the feed dogs. There are screw holes next to the throat plate, so I guess it should be possible to find a cover. If it's set up for FMQ longterm the feed dogs can be temporarily removed, a member here has done it with a 66. Some have taped a plastic card or teflon sheet over the feed dogs and it has worked well. There are ways about it until you can track down a suitable cover plate.

    Feed dogs are easily removed.
