Warford cluster gear shaft.

Post by 1crosscut » August 10th, 2019, 12:08 pm

I picked up a Warford last week and have found that the shaft going through the cluster gear has more wear on it than I’m comfortable with. Would anyone have a one that they would be willing to sell?
Failing that I will look into having one made.

I have a company lined up to make the shaft for me. Just waiting on getting the new bearings in hand to be sure that they are right before giving the go ahead for making a new shaft.
Once I get the bearings and make sure they are correct I will start a new thread with the bearing numbers and where to get them for future reference.
