I looked on ebay too. It was disappointing.

You need an ad-on low shank adapter like this.
http://www.homesew.com/Snap-on-Adapter/ ... nfo/MN113/

With this on your machine, you can use all click-on feet. A lot of dimensions on Singer machines are the same as when they started. Even the screw to fasten the adapter to the shank has a special Singer thread.

This is the situation with my Singer I bought a few year ago. The shank, the vertical rod that goes up in the machine should be similar to your version. This is called the short shank.

The adapter and presser foot are removed.

This is the adapter with the zipper foot.

You have two options. One is finding a zipper foot that mounts to the shank directly (difficult) and two is buying the adapter and the click-on zipper (or other) foot. The last option is easy.

I did finish that skirt I was talking about. I went to Joann's and I found an invisible zipper foot that works on my machine. I think I will start putting in invisible zippers more often. It wasn't that difficult.

I have not used invisible zippers yet. Maybe I should try it for my next project.

I remember buying one but I can't see where it is now.
There is no such thing as a normal person, only someone you don't know very well yet.

"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !
