If you have found other brand-name or generic presser feet that can be used on the F-series Juki machines, could you list them?

The interchangeable presser feet thread is huge and searches are hit or miss.

I and other Juki F-series owners thank you for your time.

I have a Viking SE and screwed the Viking shank onto the f600. It took a little effort, but since the shank is plastic I could get the f600 screw through the Viking shank. Couldn't use the screw for the Viking because it is a tad bit smaller and also shorter. I only tried it out of desperation because the ONLY drawback I have found with the f600 is that a metal seam guide can not be screwed onto the bed of the machine. With the Viking shank I can use the edge stitching foot with guide, put the needle position all the way to the right...and perfect 1/4 " seam (well....for me, that is)....btw, this is off topic but I either bought an f600 that was assembled on a Monday...or Juki has some excellent engineers.

I read somewhere that any of the snap on feet that fit Babylock or Janome will work on the F600.

I tried the snap on feet from my Janome 6600 and while they snapped on without any problem, the hole in the foot is too far back. Maybe the Janome feet would work if you used a Janome shank. My 6600 is in a closet and I am not nice enough to drag it out...:) Brother (AKA Babylock) has a shank that looks just like the Juki shank, so maybe those feet will work with the Juki shank. Btw, a Viking shank costs less than $15.

All of my vintage hemming and binder attachments fit on it. I don't know whether I should use them, but they work better on the Juki than they do on the Morse.

I think Rippledandelion (not sure how she writes it) said in her SM review that Elna presser feet fit the Juki HZL F-600.

I thought all feet for a low shank were interchangeable with other low shank machines. Is this not the case???

I bought a Pfaff low shank adaptor and find the feet work brilliantly - the widths are compatible.

The only fiddly bit is unscrewing the basic foot holder because the screw is smooth rather than ridged.

I found that most of my Janome feet do not line up properly to use. So far the Juki feet have been more than adequate but I would like to know what other options are possible.

I have been delighted with my recent purchase of the Juki F600. It is so quiet that I can join my family while they are watching TV and sew without disturbing anyone. It goes over seams without any hesitation.

I did a best offer from Ken's on eBay for a NIB F600 and ended up paying much less than the classroom used model. The machine was NIB opened just to include bonus items.

I will look into changing shanks eventually.

Thanks to everyone who replied.

That's true... sort of. If all sewing machines had identical ankles that would be true. Snap on feet require the right kind of snap on adapting ankle. Viking snap on feet don't really snap on, they kind of push on. It may be that all (ankle+feet) are interchangeable. One exception is walking feet since those need to line up with the feed dogs. I don't have numerous machines across different platforms to test this theory, just speculating based on many posts and very limited experience
