  • gear question 0.020"

    Had to bore off a gear from a electric motor shaft this past week and restub it back on the rotor.
    Somewhere along the line i went off a little
    I now have a 0.020" TIR jump in the gear.
    Enough to make the box noisey but not jam or stick
    i.e. turns freely
    Two things I guess to do...start again or can I get away with machining the 0.020" off the OD of the gear.
    Replys , though etc

    The pitch circle of the gear is going to be off 0.020 and will gradually destroy everything. Start again.
