I haven been changing around the shop and as such have gone away from South Bend for now (I'll miss them).  Anyway, I have a set of these that was only used once if anyone is looking to buy as set.  Feel free to PM me.  Worked great, just sold the SB and don't need them now.

PM sent, I am interested in the gears.

My gearset arrived today. The pair of big ones are pinned together with 2 pins, but have a slight wobble. What has to be done, replace the 2 pins with tighter fitting ones?

Alright, got the gears as well as  a full set of 3C hex collets!   ;D

The transposition pair is wobbly....what I found was the bore on the 127 gear was a touch big for the bushing.   This allows the gear to wobble on the bushing....
So my approach will be thus

1. Get rid of the awful silver "Made In China" paint .....Need vomit emoticon....
2. Check both gears for concentricity with the bore.  This Is important or you will get drunken threads.
3. Correct the bores IF necessary.   This will be done on a face plate indicating off the flanks of the gear teeth with a pin and a dial indicator.  Then bore to clean...size is not important.
4. Machine a new bushing to fit the bores and Loctite the gears to the bushing.
5. Insert 1 pin through both gears to complete the repair.
6. Paint a soothing Rustoleum color of your choice....in my case   Smoke Gray.

Now that's one even I, the ultimate hater of emoticons, could find plenty of uses for.  Can we add it to the assortment available on the forum?

Sounds like a good plan Dave, we need pictures though of the repair and the other goodies that you ordered too. 

Love the emoticon Bob!!  Happy New Years guys!

Got some decent 12  year old libation to contend with at the moment, and then....some wrenching and racing at the New Years Race tomorrow!.....

After that....   Probably this weekend....

My last day at the evil place is Friday!    I start the new job on the 12th!   Feeling good about that!

Mosey...if you get out ahead of me, make the bushing fit like .001 clearance....nice and tight but not too tight for Loctite.   That will keep things concentric.
