I really enjoy your articles and the wealth of information you provide. You also write so well which, having just retired from 36 years as a writer, impressed me. So THANK YOU. My collection of VSMs had grown from five to more than 30 since I retired 6 months ago.

Thanks. I was going to sell the discs that came with my SInger 603 Touch and Sew until I read this. I have several 401's, a 403, a 503, and a 603. I can use them on all of my machines.

Is the photo on the right a disc from the 600 series which has meet with the dermal tool or is is one from the 400 series? I own a 403 a which is my favorite top stitching machine I have ever owned yet straight stitch is all it has ever done for any project as the discs are from a later machine.
