I have a Singer 1425 sewing machine. My husband bought this machine for me in the late 70's and I was told it is the last Singer that has metal gears. Until today I've never had any problems with it. Today when I started to sew and the fabric won't feed. I've taken it apart and cleaned all the lint out. Checked everything and it all looks okay. Changed the needle and rethreaded. Changed the bobbin thread.
I can't afford to take it into the shop right now. Does anybody have any suggestions on what else I could try to do on my own.
