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
