RE: [atlas_craftsman] (unknown)
Chris – a common and frustrating problem – but try cutting a key way in it and making a key .
Mount the gear in your chuck , lock the chuck so it can’t move e.g. by engaging the back gear , and mount a parting tool on the top slide flat and pointing forwards in the centre of the bore of the gear , and slowly ‘cut’ the key way the thickness of the parting tool by moving the carriage back and forth taking off a couple of thou at a time . If the resulting slot isn’t wide enough , then carefully pack the tool and cut it further ,
Good luck ,
I understand this now and the 10f-82 has a smooth bore just like a pipe, no key of any kind. I'm new at this so thanks.
I was looking at the attachments (for another reason) and happened to notice the two miter gear photos you attached on 03 APR (I'm going to delete one of them). What went wrong I think is that you seem to have attached a thumbnail, not the actual photo.
