I just bought a slant needle Singer and it comes with Top Hat Cams. Can it use the flat cams?

What is the difference? Can they do the same things? I haven't a clue here, can you help?

The flat cams go to sm like a 306 which is a low shank sm. I think top hat cams go with the slant needle sm. If your sm has the opening on top it most likely takes top hat cams. The flat cams lie flat against the sm....on a 306 they fit on the side of the sm up flat against the sm.
I hope this helps.

The cams are not interchangeable. The tophat cams are pretty easy to find on ebay. I have also seen them at thrift stores fairly often. That's where I got mine.

My Singer Touch & Sew 603 comes with 20 top hat cams, and I found two more in a thrift shop, so I think I might have enough!

Though I might want to get one of each one they sell.

You're starting down a very slippery slope.....

I have been going down that icy slope for a long time now......... And finding this site hasn't helped at all.

You guys have given gravity a push, and caused me to buy all kinds of stuff lately!
