We consider the question of when is the closed manifold obtained by elementary surgery on an n-knot Seifert fibered over a 2-orbifold. The possible bases are strongly constrained by the fact that knot groups have weight 1. We present a new family of 2-knots with solvable groups, overlooked in earlier work. The knots in this new family are neither invertible nor amphicheiral, and the weight orbits for the knot groups are parametrized by Z. There are no known examples in higher dimensions.
