I also saw a lot of Featherweights when I went to Brimfield, a giant antique/flea market in Massachusetts.

As you can see below,there's only one screw holding the face plate on.

See the Featherweight Shop for a list of accessories that go with the Featherweight.

Featherweight sewing machines were produced from 1933 to 1968, and approximately 3-3.5 million were produced (see here for more information), so there are a lot of Featherweights still out there.

There's a lot of information on maintaining and troubleshooting Singer Featherweights, so you shouldn't feel like you have to take it to a professional for a cleaning/tune-up. Here are some of the most common issues and how to address them.
