Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I read your reply on others and thought to ask what you thought about replacing the only plastic gear in the unit. Have a metal gear made? I see that they are no longer around. thoughts?
Drill 3 or 4 holes along the path of where each gear tooth is missing. The holes should be sized to about 75% of the width of the tooth at its base. Drive appropriate sized screws into the holes. Clip off the tops of the screws to match the original tooth height. File the sides of the screws at an angle to match the original tooth sides. You are essentially replacing the missing gear tooth with three or four screws filed to match the tooth profile.
