JCAR is absolutely right. The Consew 18 is a copy of the Singer 118, and while they are industrial walking foot machines, they are not compound feed. (compound feed means the machine has more than one feeding system, usually needle feed and drop feed which uses feed dogs to push the material through the machine) They were intended to do hemming in garment factories.

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