I checked the replacement (chinese i imagine ) gear i bought to fix my broken quill drive gear. On the optical comparator there is a bit of differance in the tooth form. I started filing the sharp edges off then filed more and kept trying it after thourough cleaning back in the mill. Finally got the scotchbrite pad on the 90 degree air grinder and deburred and polished it all up. Noticeable differance. It is fairly smooth now. Now i cant get the clutch to work properly. But will be happy just having the mill back in action. Thanx to all who helped with information wher to buy replacement pieces. And all the other Tips thanx again Mike
