Knockonit, I just bit the bullet and spent the money on the metal gears. I know they are outlandishly expensive, but they are cut and drilled to fit exact, so I went with it. To replace the machine would be $1400 for Supermax or $900 for Grizzly. So for a little under $200 I justtified keeping what i have. I did see your approach and wondered if you couldn’t adapt one of those closed end ratchet wrenches to replace your visegrip. Seemed like a lot of work to flip everything around, and my time in the shop is limited by my time at work, so had to go the quick fix route. Did get all the gears off, so now waiting for the parts to arrive.

Thanks for the reply.
