This is one of the two gears on the Singer 400, 500 that often get damaged and loose teeth. This worm gear lives on the long horizontal shaft under the machine. If it becomes damaged and looses a few gear teeth the machine will not feed the fabric. This worm gear runs with the feed lifting gear. Free UK delivery on all orders over £30

    Excellent service. Machine up and running in no time. Only problem with working on a machine made in the early 1970s was finding an appropriate allen key for the grub screws on the original gears. I happened to have a an old set of imperial keys.
    New ones are metric.

    Although I had problems using the online service (password problem) the telephone service was excellent and the required part arrived 2 days later. Very good service.
