- Aug 17, 2014I'd be hesitant to do anything permanent. Stay with mild steel or stainless, perhaps.

I took it apart and found that the ring gear was spinning on it's shaft; the pin that was driven through the gear and into the table (it's parallel to the shaft) had sheared off. The pin was probably mild steel. If I can remove the rest of the pin, I'll replace it with something like a rollpin, but I was thinking about using a bunch of red loctite to keep the ring in place.Thoughts?-Dave
