Wonderful video Matt!  It definitely has ASMR qualities, it would be a shame to cover such a beautiful machine's work with music.

Thanks everyone! It was so fun to make the video and share the process with people. The Rocketeer sure is a workhorse, but she gets temperamental without a little oil on the race and bobbin case...

Just for you Lori! It's the 161162, meant for the 401. I saw it and was like, I neeeeed that. It's very cool for a few reasons, and I love the sound it makes. The attachment screw is interesting -- it first screws all the way through the presser bar threads, and *then* screws into the attachment, which looks like black plastic but it's metal, maybe blackside. The foot itself works so well. The included manual is delightful. And I'm finding more and more that I prefer the 401-series parts to those that correspond to my 500-series. I couldn't resist finding the embroidery foot specific for the 500s, 161596 (last picture), because it's pictured in my manual. These all seem to be made in Great Britain with "GT BRIT" on them, and they have clear plastic to let you see the embroidery better allegedly. I find that the one I have doesn't seem to work nearly as well as my 161162, and I don't feel there's any visibility issues with the metal foot. And that jaunty angle with which the foot jogs over to come under the needle, because it attaches to the right side of the presser bar - it just looks 50s/60s to me. 
Sorry, *gasps for air* I really do love these machines! [love]

That's a hoot!
