Has anyone used this Japanese buttonhole attachment for single needle industrial machines? Does anyone have a recommendation for a buttonholer for the Juki T98Q?

I read on another forum that a lady has an industrial one, but doesn't think the buttonholes are as good as ones from vintage Greist buttonholers for home machines. The old domestics work if you go slow with your industrial, but you have to make sure it's a high shank attachment. They are more difficult to find. #7 is high shank, left needle postion, #10 is high shank center needle position on the Greist buttonholers.

Thanks, that's great information to have. I guess I'll have to search ebay for the Greist #10. I have only industrial feet for the Juki - didn't think of using a "home machine" attachment.

You'll save some cash, too!
I should have a 10, but am making a 7 work, somehow.
Happy bidding!

I found a high shank center needle position Greist (no number given) on eBay - too a chance and bought it. Will post with model number of Greist if it works on the Juki TL98Q

If it doesn't work w/your's, I may wish to buy it from you if it's a #10 & the price is right. My 7's okay, but not perfect.

It should arrive in a few days. As soon as I try it out, I'll post the results and we can get in touch if I need to sell it. Thanks for your info and for the followup.

The Greist buttonholer #10 does fit on the Juki TL98Q. I bought it from An Old Reliable on ebay - they had several of the same thing available. I hope you are able to get one. (keep your old Greist templates, I had two the same size in the one that I received) It does appear to be new.

I just "won" a #10, yesterday. It was missing some templates, but I "won" a low shank zigzag model with a multitude of templates a few weeks ago. If the 10 works better than the 7, I'll then have to put the 7 back on ebay. I've become an addict, yikes! The only thing better would be a 10Z for me. I'm happy the thing works.
