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

    Easy to dentify the correct parts from photo on website. Photo could be better quality though as it is very fuzzy. Parts came quickly. Managed to fit using you tube video guide. Timing not yet perfect but working on it. Many thanks.

    I have just used a feed shaft worm gear along with four other parts to restore my very old singer 501 , the parts were delivered quickly, they all fitted perfectly, not an easy job but worth the effort. The machine now works like new. Delighted

    Needed new worm gear for 40 year-old machine. Just fell apart. Used video online on how to replace sewing machine gears. Very useful. Tricky to get timing of needle and bobbin working together. Now it works.
    Also fitted matching large feed-lift gear after Singer Machines help to find the correct part.

    Fitted to a Singer 513 as a direct replacement. Bit fiddly to get the shaft out far enough to do the job, but part fitted and working well. Speedy shipping and quality part. Thank you.
