kcr357 Looking again, it seems the presser foot was sewn on at a slight bit of an angle to the feed dog and the feed dog is lifting up the presser foot a bit; it didn't present a problem when I tested it out before buying, but when doing work it started. Maybe just going to try to find a pfaff or adler and get rid of this one.

kcr357 When I an doing a double fold over stitch, I don't leave much of a margin between the fold and where I sew, the cutout on the welting foot seems to be causing the fabric to bunch up it doesn't push the fabric through right.

DanTwoLakes The presser bar, along with the needle bar, should only be changed by a qualified sewing machine mechanic. You will never replace the part yourself without screwing up the timing of the machine, and then you'll have to pay them anyway. $150 for the presser bar and the labor to install it is a reasonable price. The new presser bar is about $30 from a dealer, and it's 1 1/2 hours to replace.

Why do you need to replace the foot? I sew 99% of the things I sew with a welt foot on my machine. Granted, it would be nice to be able to switch feet, but for most sewing it's not necessary.

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?
