Anyone have 3d printer that can print a small gear for a Chanel master rotor controller?

Bill,

Before you go to too much expense and difficulty replacing the Channel Master gear, I suggest you first check with Norm’s Rotor Service to see if he has the part(s) you need. (He’s a friend I knew in Maryland before I moved to Texas.) He has a great operation there for rotor maintenance.


If all else fails, considering consider checking out the 10Bitworks Makerspace facility in San Antonio. They have at least a half a dozen 3-D printers, if you’re willing to invest the time and energy to learn how to use them.


Good luck. 73.   -Ken-

Thanks, Ken
I tried both resources and they do not have gear. I did find a youtube video about repairing the controller. Guy made a 3d printed gear, I emailed him about making gear for me. Awaiting reply. I do have 3d printer file for gear on tinker(autodesk) So marker space maybe last option.

Chanel Master made an all-electronic version cm-9537 maybe an alternative.

Hi Bill,

I'd be willing to take a stab at it, if you're OK with PLA material.

BTW 3D printing is a great side hobby for hams.

Bill,

 

Just got back into town.  I can also look at it.  I can do PETG as well as PLA.

Bill,

If you have the file, email it to me. I'll take it to the store and see if I can print it.
