I hope one of the featherweight fans can help me...
I'd like an invisible zipper foot for my 1951 FW 221 - Can I just use a generic low shank invis zipper foot, or do I need a special kind of foot?
I know that when I search on ebay, many vendors say their feet are suitable for FW; I just want to check in with the experts who aren't trying to sell something!
Many many thanks!!

it doesn't matter what type of sewing you do. you are sewing, and sewing is good.

Yes, a generic low shank IZ foot should work. To be safe, after installing any generic foot, I hand-turn the wheel to make sure the needle doesn't strike the foot - not all generics are created equal.

My fav foot for installing invisible zips is a 5 or 7 groove pintuck foot.

Thanks to both of you for the info and help! I'll feel much more confident now ordering a generic low-shank IZ foot (or pintuck foot - that's an interesting idea!)
