Stitcheroo: The sewing machine can't possibly sew correctly using a presser foot to sew welts, unless you make major modifications to the foot, and then it becomes a lousy welt foot and a lousy presser foot. There are two types of welt feet. One type has the back left corner cut out of it to make tighter corners. The foot on the left is like that, and I bought it that way. Yes, every upholsterer has run over a welt and ruined a project, which is no big deal if it's fabric or vinyl. If it's leather,ultraleather,ultrasuede, or suede, it is a big deal. Why invite trouble? My welt feet almost never come off my machines, and every sewing room with commercial sewing machines in it that sews welts is the same way.
No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
