Emailing Me - please read this page before you do so...

If you have any doubts about the make, model, or age of your machine, it really helps if you send an image.
Preferably of the actual machine, not one a bit like it from the web, please. And if it doesn't say "Singer" on the front it isn't a Singer machine..Small files, please, my broadband is a bit creaky

I don't normally deal in electric machines or any parts that are directly electrical, such as pedals, plugs, or motors. This is for two reasons: firstly I don't like electrical bits or know much about them: secondly, I am not allowed to by law unless I PAT test parts, and I don't personally do that...
Try eBay, and ask your localplace, they will have some electrical stuff. Failing that, they can test your bits and pieces for you.
(Updated - I now have a tame electickery man, so watch for a new page or two...)

Mostly commonly replaced parts are available all over the place. I can get needles, rubber tyres for bobbin winders, treadle belts, springs, regular and zip feet, etc. at my local sewing machine shop, and so can you. They are never going to stop being available while there is a market, so please ask locally first. If you really can't get the part I will source for you, but it helps the world to run better if everyone understands that newer is not necessarily better...
Don't let your sewing machine man tell you that he can't get stuff, he can...
For all other parts, I need to know the Make, Model, and approximate age of your machine (serial number), and precisely which bit is broken/missing. Again, if you don't know, please ask...
