    Hi, I am also replacing a couple of the gears underneath my wifes 638, can't exactly figure out how to get them off, have loosened the set screws on the gears and shaft but I haven't found the trick that gets enough room to remove them from the shaft, also need instructions on how to re-time it if I get that far...,

Singer T&S 638, the whole bobbin assembly popped out. My mom-in-law said the needle caught and it just popped out. So it must be pssible to "pop" it back in, right? :)

Manual may be helpful:

Singer Touch Sew 638 Instructions Manual

Just an FYI, be sure to apply a couple drops of fresh good quality sewing machine oil as directed in the instruction manual. Do NOT use 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or old stinky brown sewing machine oil. Keeping it regularly maintained will keep your sewing machine running smoothly for many years.

How do you remove the hand wheel on a singer model #648 sewing machine

Sounds like you might have a broken gear in the transmission. Since the Touch and Sew series (aka Touch and Swear, Sew and Throw, etc.) are so touchy about adjustments, I'd probably take this one to a good sewing machine mechanic and let him/her do the heavy lifting on this.

Mygolden singer touch and sew wont feed the material

Does the feed dogs move at all?
If not soulds like a busted gear. Take the botom panel off and inspect the gears should be able to get some from a sewing dealer and replace them if your mechanical. watch a youtub video on timing a sewing machine and you will do great.
hope this helps
