clamp on walking feet any good?

Question for you upholstery experts out there. I was wondering if those clamp on walking feet for standard machines are any good at all?

I have a not so regular machine, an old Singer shuttle bobbin foot treadle machine that I went all the way through a few years ago, It will handle multiple layers of leather and other heavy fabric without any major problems, but it does have issues bunching, like any non walking foot machine will if you get too thick.
So before I drop thirty +bucks on one of these contraptions, it would be nice to know if they are worth fooling with. We are going to have a lot of interior trim to fabricate on our latest project and my son really wants to take a shot at making as many pieces as possible

Thanks-
