I'm looking at getting some additional feet for my Juki F600. I have a $50 credit with Sewing Machines Plus, but they don't carry genuine Juki feet, and when I called, the person I talked to wasn't sure about which feet would work with it.

I'd like a metal invisible zipper foot, instead of the Juki plastic one, as well as some metal bobbins, but I can't find any info on what size bobbin the machine takes, nor what kind of snap-on foot.

Does anyone have this information? Or is there some reference I'm missing?

I think most of the Brother/BabyLock feet will work. That was one of the reasons I was considering a Juki...I have a boatload of Brother feet! There is an F600 owner here who said in their review that they use Viking feet. The ankle from her Viking SE worked, though the screw hole had to be enlarged a bit so she bought an extra ankle to use on the Juki. Viking has some really nice feet, though they may cost a little more. They do have a metal invisible zipper foot:

As far as bobbins go, I don't think there are metal bobbins to be used in this machine. Janome J bobbins work, including the nice pink Cherry Blossom and Blue bobbins, which are made of a special rubber and plastic combination which allows them to better hold threads, absorb machine vibration and reduce noise.

Pfaff feet fit if you get the ankle too. They sew like a dream, I was really relieved that i did not have to part with them.

The 600 comes with a pretty good assortment of feet. I'm curious to know what new feet you are looking to buy?

I bought the Juki F Series presser feet kit ( Juki F Series Heavy User Foot Kit) but from Kens Sewing Center. I got 6 diff. presser feet: rolled hemming foot, blind presser foot, cording and emb. presser foot, invisible zipper and button attaching foot.
I am sure if you mention you would have a discount with the other place, they could give you a better price.

Delt with them several times and the service is very good. I got a discount as I ordered the MO-735 serger feet kit also.

I have the F-600 and it does come with a lot of extra feet but I needed the others that don't come with the F-600, so it was cheaper to buy a kit than individually...
Hope this helps...

Funny, that's what the guy at SMP said, too. I'm specifically looking for a metal invisible zipper foot and a straight stitch foot, which do not come with the machine.

Yes, I have considered the foot kit at Ken's, but, like the machine itself, it comes with feet I don't especially want, and does not include the ones I do. Although I am tempted by the foot with the measurement guide.

I am also surprised that here is nothing in the manual that says what size the bobbins are. I have over twenty that came with my machine, but I'd still like to know what size they are for when I want more.

I have an invisible zipper foot on my want list as well, you think I would have thought of that one.

If I were getting the straight stitch foot I would want the plate as well, I presume Juki has one as most machines do.

The size is named and called a plastic class 15 bobbin. I think using a metal bobbin in there too much, (even though maybe not just only once or twice) will wreck your plastic bobbin case. Then you will also be looking for new replacement drop in bobbin cases too, so I think that is a bad idea.

If I really wanted a metal invisible zipper foot, I think I would get one of the clip on ones, made for a Singer X1000. XL5000 or XL6000 machines. Just since particular metal invisible zipper feet were made rather really nice and expensively, and were actually made by Juki too. I don't' know if it would clip on there good or not, but if it did not, then you could probably also just get an ankle piece for a Singer XL1000, XL5000 or XL6000 machine and use that bolted onto the machine, instead of the ankle piece that is on there now, just for that zipper foot.

If you just want a bolt on kind of plastic invisible zipper foot, I think they still sell those in those little kits with multiple fasteners on them, for high, and low shank machines, and I think those are most times, hanging someplace next to the zipper racks in all the big fabric stores.
