    Very cool! You should paint the plastic motor housing with some black Krylon Fusion paint made for plastic and then get some gold Testors model paint and duplicate some of that scroll work on to the box...that would look sweet!

    How much clearance under the foot did you lose with the walking attachment?

    they work on any machine -but you need the right height for the foot press to work correctly

    with that foot installed i gained 1/4" clearance with the other one Singer brand i lost almost all clearance on this particular machine ...but on others works fine
