Thanks for the introduction to these discs! Could you tell me if flexi-stitch discs and fashion discs are interchangeable? I know that there are 'top hat' style flexi-stitch discs, and there are some patterns on them that I like. My 648 takes fashion discs, though, and I don't know if I could use a top-hat variety flexi-stitch disc with it.

Sorry I somehow missed responding to your question back in March. Flexi-stitch and fashion discs aren't really interchangeable. I've found that the later discs don't always snap firmly into place in the older machines. I've had some success with using a dremel to make them seat more firmly but I don't recommend it.

Hello, the model #648 was the last of the "cam driven only" 600 series Touch and Sew machines.. It did not have the ability to use the cream colored "Flexi-Disks". It can use all the black "Top Hat" cams except for the # 40 (basting stitch- orange decal).. When the # 700 series arrived all the "Top Hat and Flexi-Stitch " cams could be used..

Could I use discs from a 648 in my new (old) 503, which came with no discs.? Somebody has a full set for very little and I'd jump on it of I could,

So glad Google took me by the hand and led me to this site

You will still need to adjust the stitch length and width and use the proper letter position to get the actual stitch. When in doubt, experiment! Then note the settings you liked. I sometimes keep little 3x5 samples on an index card to refer to once I find a stitch variation

My 319K (from 1958) takes original Fashion Discs and also has built-in stitches. When I first tried the machine it wouldn't do anything but straight stitch but it was nothing to do with settings - the mechanism was so gummed up with old oil that the spring couldn't pull it back, so the needle went to one side and stayed there. I'd try applying a little pressure from side to side on the needle bar while turning the machine by hand to see if it can be persuaded to move. You may need to apply a light lubricant (I prefer GT85) to soften and wash out the old oil, before wiping down and applying proper sewing machine oil.

Hi, I have a 328k and disks. Only the ZZ works. When I load in any other disk, I get a straight stitch. I've tried fiddling with all the settings (which are L/C/R and 0-6) -- nothing. The mechanism itself seems to move freely. Unlike the 403/401, there's not much to see or play with inside the cam apparatus. Any thoughts? Thanks so much.

I just brought home a 328K today. I can go from straight to zig zag using the horizontal stitch width selector. Position 0 is straight stitch. You can see it working if you open the top cover door. When it is not in the 0 position, the mechanism rides along the fashion disc cam as the machine rotates making the selected pattern. When it is in the 0 position it gets pushed away from and off of the disc and stays put, making a straight stitch.

Hi there! Sorry to point out errors in your post, as nice and informative a post that it is; but the flat discs aren't just for vertical needled machines as you put it. Singer released a slant-needle model that uses flat fashion discs. It is called the Singer 675U, It's a model that can be driven by a treadle, has a slant needle, and uses the older flat cam discs.

I'm looking for the case of fashion discs that came with a Pfaff, model 92 (over 50 years old). They were contained in a grey plastic slotted case.

I'm looking for a set of cams for my Singer Model #328K Style-O-Matic sewing machine. I only have the #37 zig zag disc and would like to purchase replacement cams. All my other cams disappeared when I moved recently.

Joy try Sewingpartsonline.com - I too have a 328k and only have 1 fashion disc (#13) that it came with. I don't want all the fashion disc just the #1 for zigzag and found this site to be very helpful with said parts.

Did the Golden touch and sew come with a cam in the machine, besides the ones in a plastic container. I do not have a plain zigzag came.

My husband found an old Sewmore Deluxe ZigZag 939 in a cabinet sitting on the side of the road and brought it home to me, after cleaning her up nice and shiny, she powers up and already have a new belt ordered as the current one is dry rotted, sadly the cams weren't with it. What cams are compatible with it?

I have a very heavy singer 8280 singer with no cams
1/15/2022 04:22:53 am
The 8280 has internal cams. Rotate the lower knob to change the stitch design.

I recently bought a Nelco Super, that I believe is a golden stitch series. I have been able to find very little information on this particular machine. But it takes fashion discs. Any ideas on compatible sizes?
