Question about Sewing Machines
I know almost nothing about seweing but bought this machine at an auction. It is in beautiful shape with many accessories, but it seems like the two feet that should advance the material have almost no teeth on them. They function correctly, but seem to be worn off to the point of not ''grabbing'' the cloth. What are these called and are replacement ones available? Is this a common item to wear out or am I just not doing something correctly? Thanks for any help you can give me.
I'm guessing you bought an older Singer Touch & Sew that had the rubber "feeddogs". They always wear off eventually. Metal ones I would be surprised if wore down. Usually just two small screws holding them in. Anyway, you can get replacements by just doing a search for sewing machine feeddogs.
