I've been wondering for a long time - why is there a second threaded hole in the presser bar, above the one for the foot? I looked in the manual and didn't see any mention of it. Was it for some really cool attachment?


X-posted since I got it the first post in the wrong category somehow.

This almost could go in quilting corner if you actually used that hole with the quilting bar.  It looks like it needs a U-shape clamp to put around the presser bar, line up the holes, put the quilting bar through the holes of the clamp and the presser bar, then tighten the screw in the clamp with the bar end in the position from the needle that you want the quilting lines to go.

I don't think this is for a 12, but I don't know.  A picture of a clamp, with screw, can be seen with the quilting bar through it can be seen at https://www.victoriansweatshop.com/post/show_single_post?pid=1307764497&postcount=13&forum=501752

Interesting! I wonder if that was what it was for? I'll have to look at that manual again.

If you got the manual from http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_machine_company/manuals/singer-12k-manual.pdf it is on page 10 of the pdf

Thank you! I don't know where I got it from before. I see it now.

I'm kind of disappointed though. I was hoping it was for something really weird.
