    I found the website without difficulty and easily located the top bevel gear I needed. Processing the order was a doddle and it's arrived. I'm looking forward to getting it installed. I anticipate some wiggling and fiddling to do that but I guess that's the joy of doing it yourself!

    Part ordered came as expected. Only niggle was that it had an Allen key grub screw rather than a slotted grub screw as in photo
    but despite this all is good!

    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.
