Search for gears with a bore of 3.06". It's categorized into a goofy location as I recall.

Hey, you also owe me an email! :)

Hi All

I found this gearbox in the Maplin catalogue here in the UK and I think it may be what you are all looking for:

www.maplin.co.uk

Bevelled Gear Box, Part No. N16BQ @ 16.99 GBP

Hope this helps

Henry, I inquired with that company some time ago, asking what would it cost to deliver that gearbox to the US, but received no reply.

hello there,
i was reading your posts, but not absolutelly in detail. maybe this is already mentioned, but maybe not.
some time ago i discovered that gears from sewing machine can be used for building FF. you can find it easily in most shops/services with sewing machines. and its cheap. different sizes from different models and they are durable and precise enough for FF.

Hi Alex

Here is another company which sells angle gear boxes and gears.

http://rswww.com part no. 748-443 in Power Transmission Components

They also sell a huge range of gears,tubes,bar,nuts and bolts and all the
bits you may require.
If they do not have depots in the US they will export from the UK.

They also have their catalogue on CD at http://rswww.com/newcd It makes
great reading for DIYers.

Hope this helps

I would strongly suggest buying whole gearbox from experience. I have tried building my own, and to some degree had success, but the time and effort it took would have been better spent buying the $40.00 gearbox, stronger and precisely put together. Just my 2 cents...
