Good product, quick service easy to fit, timing simple to set up. One just needs to read the instructions carefully, all the information is there.
Rapid delivery. Ordered Sunday night, arrived Tuesday. Top bevel gear as described now fitted into machine & working well.
Excellent delivery time to deepest rural Spain, correct piece sent for old old maching, fitted easily by mechanically minded husband and tested by yours truly. Machine is up and running again - sighs of relief all round,
I was delighted to find the part I needed for my very old sewing machine on your website AND you shipped to France. I received my order in less than a week of having placed it. Many thanks.
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.
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]
1st Class replacement, fast delivery, good value.Downloaded instructions on fitting and re-timing. Service could not be better.
A perfectly fitting part delivered promptly and the machine is once again working. Great stuff!
Part arrived next day & fitted perfectly
