Customer Question

I have an old singer 720 sewing machine the presser foot is too high
JA: How old is your Singer sewing machine?
Customer: I don't know
JA: How long has this been going on with your Singer sewing machine? What have you tried so far?
Customer: The machine has been passed down after bereavement its not been used for maybe 12 months I've cleaned and oiled it but if I use an adjustable presser foot its too high and if I use the original feet the needle hits the presser foot and won't sew
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The machine does work and when I used the adjustable presser foot low enough to put the foot in the right position it sewed lovely but the adapter keeps falling off
