Adding reverse?
« on: August 04, 2017, 06:49:21 AM »
In a recent conversation with an upholstery shop owner, the subject of reverse capable vs. forward only machines came up.  He mentioned that he'd wanted to buy the kit that converts his forward-only walking foot to reverse capable.

Granted, I am no expert, but I had never heard of this type of thing before.  Is there such a thing?  An aftermarket kit to add reverse?  Or is he a few bricks short of a load?

I very much doubt it, you would had find a ton of tutorials at Google on how to do this if it's possible in the first place. At my job that are very old machines that are forward stitching only, we were trained to turn the work couple times to lock the stitch and it just become second nature after a while.

I've seen and heard of a bunch of old Singer 7-33's being converted with after market reverse, amongst other things. Gregg at Keystone Sewing can probably give more intel on machine conversions, I doubt it's going to be economical though.
