    Very good. Would be helpful
    to give instructions on how to retime the machine. I managed it after a lot of fiddling.

    The nylon tooth top bevel gear lost all its teeth and I thought that it would be impossible to buy a replacement as the machine (447) is over 50 years old .
    However I was delighted that this part is still available. The part arrived quickly
    and I fitted it with little trouble and the machine is working beautifully again.

    Our 447 (400 series) model had suffered a shattered Top Shaft Bevel Gear. Solution found at Sewing Machine Sales and the new part was with me that week along with a reprint of the operator's manual. Service excellent, but cannot yet comment on the ease of fitting or the replacement bevel gear's performance.

    We were given a '60s model 447 machine with a broken drive gear. A quick search took me to the singer machines site and 5minutes later the part was ordered and on it's way, couldn't have been simpler. The bevel gear arrived 2 days later, well packaged and following the guide on your website was fitted, the machine re-timed and running perfectly. Many thanks.

    Can't believe how easy the website was to use, and how easy and quick the ordering went. Item arrived in double quick time, pity the fitting wasn't as quick. All in now, seems that I need a few more parts, I know where I'll be going.

    Excellent service. Great website with a knowledge database that helps you sort any issues out. Bought a new bevel gear. it was a bit awkward to fit, but now working.
    excellent service. I bought an old machine off ebay and it needs a lot of TLC. i will have no problem sources all the bits from this website. Would recommend

    Fantastic service and a great product. I broke my Singer 427 top shaft bevel gear, a very common problem in these machines due to perishing of the plastic gear. Read about it online and decided I could fix it myself and save on taking the machine in for repair at a shop. Singer machines' service was quick and friendly, the part fit perfectly and my machine is working well. The gear is sturdy and well made. I'm inspired to always do my own fixes from now on, and I'll be coming back here for the parts!

    Delivery was first class, I haven't fitted this yet but it does look like the current one. Only disappointment is the the top is plastic and not metal like the rest of the part.

    Good quality part, delivered on time. I thought it would be a nightmare of a job to change out, the teeth had chewed of the old one, but it only took an hour or so, not a novice job though!

    Part arrived the day after I ordered it. I found the easiest way to position it was to thread it onto a screwdriver blade and drop it into position. Removing the right hand cover helps in removing the old gear if it falls out.

    This is not a question but I could not see where to send a testimonial, so here it is...

    My Singer 400 Series machine broke down at lunchtime on Friday. Found your website and diagnosed a broken top bevel gear breakage. Ordered the gear online right then. The gear arrived by post at 2pm the following day and I was back sewing in the afternoon - just 28 hours later. Not bad in the best of circumstances, but exceptional when you consider I live in the Outer Hebrides. Well done.

    Excellent service overall. Part was easy, but fiddly, to fit and after a clean, all went together well. As others have said the timing info was not easy to understand and pictures or a video would have helped a lot. As it happened I was able to make reference to our daughter's machine and all worked well.

  31. Product review by Steven from Glasgow on Wednesday, June 20, 2012

    Fitted to Singer 449 no problem. Took me a few moments to realise the replacement had grub screw that needed allen key. Original was flat screwdriver slot.
    Re-setting timing not straightforward, and can't say I found instructions in faq a great help, other than letting me know to check and do it. Not making sure needle is timed to go down gap, and turning machine on, is very bad idea, and could I think be rather dangerous. Winding it round several times by hand a good idea.
    I ended up setting timing by putting needle down the gap in bobbin holder, turning bobbin holder back to maybe 1/4 way from start of gap and popping the bottom belt on at that. Maybe I was just lucky but seems to be working ok.
    A happy customer. [STAFF COMMENT: very lucky not to have misaligned the feed timing]

    Superb service - part arrived the next day even though I'm a new customer. Website was clear and easy to navigate. Only slight downside in otherwise brilliant service was that I saw lots of big signs saying FREE DELIVERY but I didn't spot the (very) small print saying it was only free on orders over £25

    After very quick delivery found part easy to install but adjusting timing was more tricky. Used instructions from knowledge base, but took several goes to get it right. A diagram of all parts of internal workings of a basic machine on the website to identify what goes where and what does what would be appreciated.

    I'm very happy with this purchase, as it took me half an hour to fit!
    The knowledge base document should be extended a bit though, to be fair... I still didn't manage to re-time the sewing machine properly based on that document... Nonetheless, the gear does it's job great!
