Gear question?

O gauge worm and wheel gears for Mashima motors. Can any member advise please where I can purchase gear sets with plastic worm gears?
TIA

You could try Branchlines or the Home of O gauge.

Brian,

Other than the modelling suppliers already mentioned, you might also want to look at gear suppliers like
Muffett - http://www.muffett.co.uk
HPC - http://www.hpcgears.co.uk
Muffets have an online catalogue where you can download .PDF files of their catalogue. HPC don't have an online catalogue, but you can get a copy of their catalogue sent to you for free (800+ pages!!!).
You will find that the smaller size ranges from these suppliers will suit 7mm scale. They cover spur gears, worm gearing, bevels, helical and cross helical, etc. and are provided in a selection of metals, and plastics. They also supply moulded plastic gear sets.
They are quite happy to supply small orders to modellers. I've dealt with both and had no problems - quick service and they respond to emails promptly.
Jim.
