    There's a blue wizard machine on the first page of that web site. I'm like you wonder what the shipping would be?
    If you register with them, then you can click on "get estimated shipping" and it will tell you how much to ship it to you.

    If you look at the listing
    under shipping if has a link
    even if you aren't registered to bid you can put in your zip code and it will give you a quote.
    I'm looking at that one also but shipping is over $45 to me!

    Oh did you have to show me that. Drool......it is oh so nice green. I am a sucker for green machines.

    I wonder is that bar a knee lifter? Does anyone know?

    Well some one is bidding on it.
    It's actually a knee lever instead of a foot pedal.

    Holy Moly! Is it just me or is anyone else paying attention to how many pages this thread is. Can you believe we are about to break the 300 mark. I'm sure Billy is over the moon about this.

    Use either the bed-mounted stitch gauge found with most accessory sets or one of the advertising magnets (rectangular and flat) on the bed the proper distance from the needle.

    If you really want a 1/4" foot, the "Little Foot" works just great, and there are a number of others that do as well. Alphasew has a couple that I have used. I have also used the ankle from a Viking 6000 series and the 1/4" snap-on foot on my SS Singer machines. I don't really understand why the foot you bought would work on your 66 but not on a class 15 machine. Should work on it as well.

    Well we looked at it and on the 15 electric and the one that has the spoke wheel also the post the foot attaches too is in a different place then it is on the low shaft 66 I have in the treadle. I have not played with other feet to see how interchangable they are between a 66 and a 15 but my guess is there would be more feet that would have issues. The post on the 15 is way more to the left then the one on the 66. so much so that the needle when going down slightly knicks the metal on the foot. DH wants to add a tiny piece of metal to the foot. We ordered a different style foot and we'll see how that works. Thanks for any input and ideas.

    I am not sure what a little foot is?

Or do I need to resort to tape? The foot was sold for both a low shaft Singer 66 treadle and an electric low shaft Singer 15-91. They are supposed to both use the same feet. Where we told wrong by the seller? It makes a wonderful 1/4 inch for the Singer 66 treadle. The foot attaches with no problem on the 15-91 but the needle hits too much to the left and even nicks onthe metal of the foot.
    Anna,

    Do you have a 'close call' contact with the needle using any other foot? If you did, it might indicate the needle bar or needle clamp is misaligned. If not, then humm, foot problem.

    Good luck.
