A few weeks back, I wrote about a worm gear with a blunted point that was causing my oscillating roller to stop during it’s run back and forth. I tried filing the point down myself, and while I was able to get it smooth, I was not able to make a nice, sharp point. Last week I took the worm gear with the broken point to a local machinist who ground down the point for me, making it a nice, sharp point again, although much shorter than the other points. He thought it wouldn’t work because of that shortness (and didn’t charge me a cent), but it does work, I’m very happy to report. Another Christmas Miracle! Happy Holidays to all!
