I think it is a good idea as well, just hope people post here so it's easy to find, instead of in the general section. Also applies to the lathe forum.

Hello all,

Thanks for getting this forum up - I'm hoping to learn about milling and some of the 'tricks' you experienced folk may take for granted.

At some time in the distant future, perhaps I'll be able to contribute something.

Best,
Mike

We've gotten a lot accomplished in the last two months. We got the forum up and running, and transferred a lot of posts over from the General Forum to this forum.

How can we make this forum better / more useful to you?
Please give us your suggestions...

Thanks!

Best,


Nelson

Thank you for letting me partake of this forum, I joined out for a search for supplies /parts.
Becoming frustrated with the fake sights, I turn to the mass collection of engineering minds for help.
I have a taft-peirce surface grinder with a broken gear that may be made of gold, because to get it mad will cost $1800.00 (WOW). So I cast a net to your great minds for help finding a traverse gear so I can get back to making products at home. Is there someone who can direct me to the one person/place to find this part?

There are several sources for stock gears. They can be purchased in a soft state, which allows for easily making alterations. Perhaps it would be possible to buy a stock gear and make the necessary changes so it would suit the need you have. A picture would go a long ways towards making that determination, so post one if you can.

Welcome to the board.

Look on page 4 to possibly identify what you have.

Your post would probably been better over in the General area. But, to add to Harold's post a picture with tooth count and some good dimensions as tp OD-ID and thickness would give us a better idea of what you are dealing with. Also please edit your profile to show a city or state. You may have some one local that can be of help.
