If you could post picture of cording foot zipper sewing, it would help.

The presser bar and the vibrating presser bar that hold the two pieces of the foot as well as the needle bar that holds the needle are all round shafts. They are called bars, but are not flat.
The zipper method with a welt foot is shown in post #14 of this thread: CLICK HERE

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
