    Hi all. I'm working on repairing a Hammond sealed synchronous clock and while refilling the oil, I dropped it and dented the can enough to break a tooth on the fiber gear. I have read a few old threads from years ago on people making replacement gears but I don't have any idea if any of those people are still around. Before I launch into the wild world of gear hobbing, does anyone do this now that might be able to fabricate one for me? If not, any advice on trying to make one?

    Thanks,
    TJ

    It seems that there was an article in the Bulletin several years ago about the restoration of an electric clock that included a discussion of the fiber gears. Perhaps that will ring a bell with someone who can point you in the right direction.
