Question about Janome 1600P-DB Mechanical Sewing Machine
The 1600-DB requires a special Walking or Even Feed Foot due to the high sewing speed, so ensure that you have the correct foot, as the "normal" top loading machine foot will not fit.
I hope these images will assist in showing how the fitting should look.
This is the Normal - WRONG - foot to compare:
This is the CORRECT Foot:
From the Janome Accessories Guide:
"The even feed foot walks over fabric to assist with smooth feeding. Fabric can be sewn without puckering as the fabric is gripped and fed by both the upper and lower feed dogs. This foot has been specially designed for durability and to work at the high speeds of the 1600 series.
Part Number - 767-403-016"
