I have an industrial Singer 20u, high shank machine, and I have a collection of low shank plastic invisible zipper feet.

Anyone with a high shank machine use an invisible zipper foot, where did you get it, and did you like it? Or are you all using your regular zipper foot to sew invisible zippers?

TIA

I bought one from my sewing machine mechanic, who are an industrial shop. Cost five bucks, if I recall. (I bought a whole bunch of feet at the same time. I'm not sure I've ever used it on a zipper.)

I have a few vintage sewing machiens that are high shank, and a ton of low shank feet..

I bought a high shank/low shank adapater, that works really great.

Don't those plastic invisible zipper feet come with the adapters for the different shanks?

I bought a box full of vintage notions just the other day and it had an invisible zipper foot with a high shank adapter. Is that what you're looking for? Or are you talking about a different kind of high shank?

This is the sharp foot for a 20u


You may want to use the straight stitch feed dog/plate.

I have some vintage plastic ones but none of them fit the machine.

I like the idea of the metal one thank you everyone, I'll let you know how it goes.

Due to the speed of industrial machines it's best to use a metal foot made for the machine with no extra adapters. The other poster had a good idea to use the straight stitch feed dogs and plate as well.
