Consew rb1 issue

I just bought a 206. Its pretty well used, but it sewed fantastic, has a linear feel to the pedal from stop to full speed, and is really smooth. Problem is, it was "serviced" by a guy that welded the welting foot to the presser foot bar. I need a regular foot on there, and obviously this presents a problem. I am not sure if the rb5 bar will work, and I also am not sure about changing it out myself. I can build a sbc with my eyes closed, jet skis, motorcycles, etc.. but for some reason sewing machines intimidate me a bit. My local shop wants 150 for the work, but I already have 550 into the machine so I would like to try it myself. Good idea or bad?
