pfaff serger feet & elna

jb007 | Posted in General Discussion on

I own a Pfaff 4874 coverlock/serger? Could anyone who owns a Pfaff 4872 or 4874 tell me if Elna feet are compatible & do they own any? I have heard conflicting stories. Of course the dealer is going to say only Pfaff feet will fit the machine, the Elna feet seem to be much cheaper & also have the same name say Piping foot E, multipurpose foot C etc

    I have an Elna Coverlock and have puchased Pfaff feet and they are the same as the Elna feet. I don't know if "all" of the feet are the same but I know that some of the attachments and guides are not the same for both brands because they attach to the sergers in different areas.

    The Pfaff feet that I have for my Elna that are identical are the Pfaff Campaign kit that has 3 feet, the adjustable blind hem foot, gathering/shirring foot and band and braiding foot. The letters are the same for these Pfaff feet as on the Elna feet. I also have the Pfaff Universal adjustable binder that requires no attachments or guides and accepts many sizes of binding.

    I have been told that both Pfaff Coverlocks and Elna Coverlocks are made in the same factory in Japan. The feet that fit the coverlocks do not fit some of the other Pfaff and Elna's that do not do coverhem. I am also uncertain if the newer Elna 845 that has the "top" coverhem ability takes the same feet as the other Elna coverhem models because the 845 does not have the tilt needle bar and it uses a top cover hem device and I am uncertain if it has the same needle placement.

        Your welcome. It's nice to know that the foot fits..as they say, "If the foot fits, wear it" LOL. I hope it works well for you.
