After finishing the restore on my JD, the top half of the Deadworld globe fell forward and got stuck. The Deadworld assembly then jammed and stopped turning altogether.
Most of the gear issues with JD seem to be with gears slipping on the shaft. My issue was the opposite - the gear is solidly on the shaft. So solid, in fact, that it was easier for the brass gear to get stripped of its teeth.
I haven't seen any topics discussing how to fix this type of gear issue. What are my options? I know I can buy a new gearbox from Marco as a last resort, but I would prefer to fix this gear if possible. A new gearbox from the US would cost me over $500 after shipping and I simply do not have that kind of cash.
Thanks for any advice.
