The newer 20u type machines including the Pfaff 9020 have a threaded hole in the right hand side of the needle bar for the needle set screw to hold the needle in. In order to use the old style 20u needle bar clamp (GR484) with extended barrel to the right, the needle bar needs to have a non-threaded hole for the old style needle bar clamp to fit. This is why we would have to change both the clamp and the needle bar to use buttonhole, ruffler and walking foot attachments available. This involves installing reseting the needle bar heigth and orientation which some customers may have a problem with. The buttonhole attachment is #IBA10. The ruffler attachment is G9 and the walking foot attachment is RWA5

Have had this model & brand machine for several years and am so happy with it. I purchased a servo motor, since I live in an apartment and didn't want to disturb anyone with the idling. Love sewing on this machine...it is so smooth and like being able to control the speed. With just the change of the feed dogs & throat plate, the machine can easily change to a zigzag with up to a 12MM witdth, which is terrific for sewing knits....
