Source of odometer spare parts.

The usual failure mode of motometer odometers is the gear cluster, these parts have been NLA for a very, very long time.

The last time the odometer failed on the wife's R65 I made a new gear by purchasing a bulk pack of plastic gears intended for electric model cars and hand cutting a new gear - not a difficult process, but a very time consuming one.

Purely accidentally I spotto'd a reference to these guys in a K100 conference I participate in.


Fie away folks, even if you are not game to do your own odometer repair you can buy the gears from these guys and give them to your instrument maker.

That's good to know!  Rather proud of them, though.  I've thought about writing a CNC program and turning out some gears on my CNC engraver.  I need some HO train gears and maybe I could do speedo gears too.
