Re: [skydived19006] Singer 457 zigzag

Anyone have experience with a Singer 457 zigzag machine? I've seen a couple advertised, and need something that I can do zig zag with.

Martin,
The 457 machines were designed for lingerie and other lightweight products.

It has a rotary take-up instead of the arm type which is a limiting factor with regards to heavier materials.

It does come in both a 304 and 308 stitch pattern which is changed by a simple cam BTW.

I do have a new stock 308 cam at the shop if you or anyone else needs one.

Overall they work for general purpose needs in the loft, but I would rather have a Singer 143W over the 457.

Hope this helps,
MEL
