How can I purchase and replace the gears on my Singer 514?
I have purchased an old Singer 514 that's gears have crumbled (I believe it is the "feed shaft worm gear long" and understand it is a complicated job and that timings are tricky). Any details/instructions and stockists of spare parts would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
You can get the gears quite easily even on ebay and they are not very expensive, doing the repair is not a major problem, I can attach full instructions if you email me, type my address as you say it not as you see it, remind me of your model, you can also get the gears from www.sewingonline.co.uk/instructions if you are in the UK or www.tandtrepair.com if you are in the US.
