Wanted: HP-97 printer gear
Message #1 Posted by Mike Ingle on 22 Sept 2007, 4:10 p.m.

I have a HP-97 with a faulty printer gear. The idler gear between the motor and the printhead carriage is stripped.

There was a blog post in 2000 describing how to cut up an aluminum gear and make a replacement. I contacted the author of that post, who indicated that someone had some custom made gears produced, and may have them available. If anyone has these gears, please let me know. I'd like to buy one.

Thanks, Mike
