Re:Universal model KAT
ssf, I looked at the photos of your machine....with
the paint wear, it looks like it may have been used in
a tailor's shop or some other type of commercial
establishment. It appearance leads me to think that it
was probably produced sometime in the 1970's.
As far as feet for the machine goes, I suspect
that it probably will accept a regular low-shank foot,
and a 15X1 needle. The plate on the back of the pillar
does give quite a bit of information on the prigin of
the machine, thankfully.
Good luck with your new 'toy'....it's definitely
been a hard-working sewing machine in the past!
