Default Re: Transmission gear/shaft question

Snyders - if you read these posts, you need to do the following:

1. Take all the shafts in stock to a local machine shop and have them remove a few thousandths off the outside diameter of the shaft. Bring along an original sliding gear that the shop can use as a (go/no go) gage for the proper diameter. After the shafts have been modified, put them back on the shelf for sale to customers.

2. Change the existing fabrication drawing for the shaft by reducing the drawing maximum dimension for the outside diameter by 0.003 - 0.004 thousandths. This will prevent future batches of the shaft from having the same problem.

Keep your customers happy!
