Bandsaw gearbox

4x6 bandsaw gearbow with worm gear

There was some axial play on the gear shaft, making any blade alignment try almost impossible. A new shaft was made, with 16mm OD for inside the gearbox and 15mm OD on the other end for bearings and wheel. The gear was re-bored to 16mm, solving also a small off-center problem. The top of the gearbox was surfaced for a good contact with cover joint to prevent any lubricant leak.
