Upholstery beginner

I have started doing upholstery work and acquired a Pfaff 130 in a industrial table(The Pfaff works great, just doesn't have the walking foot.) .

I also acquired a Singer 42-5 in a industrial table that I have not got going as of yet.

I am looking for a used walking foot machine, head only or motor and head as shipping on these in a table has been more than the price of the machine.

Anyone know of a walking foot machine in Southern Oregon for sale? I have found a Singer class 16 for sale, but don't know if it is better that the 42-5 that I already have.

Any info would be appreciated,
Thanks Mark

walking foot.com in Grants Pass might be worth a try. Robert Alberoni?

My advice to you is to keep checking eBay. I found both of mine their and they were both within driving distance of my home. It won't happen overnight though. I still keep track and have noticed that older walking foots like the 111W's and the Consew 225's are becoming less and less available on there. eBay seems to now have more of the current models available. I got my 111W153 head for $175 and I picked up my Consew 225 with clutch motor and table for $175 as well.
