- Hi John,I had to do a search to find the article on the Mother Earth website. The link didn't work for me. That is a novel approach using the right angle foot from an outboard motor.Another solution to the reduction is to purchase the gears from the folks that manufacture extractors. I replaced the crank handle and a couple of bearings on my extractor sevreal years ago cheap. There are two gear manufactures that sell to the public; one is Boston Gear and the other is Chicago Gear??. I don't know if they sell plastic gears or not. The gears in my old extractor are not machined. They are cast steel but I think the new plastic ones would be preferred.Regards,Jon
