equipment which is still usable) and a couple of the large gear assemblies
have broken teeth. These are rack and pinion style gears which move the
blade up and down via a hand turned wheel. The gear teeth are about 1/2"
thick, 1" in length and stand about 3/4" tall. I have a Miller 180 MIG
welder and an old stick welder and I am still a beginner. What I'd like to
do is build up the gear tooth and then grind it down to size. Would
multiple passes with the MIG unit be OK, or is the standard wire too soft?
I have some sticks for cast iron welding with a high nickel content and I
thought about using them, or 7013 sticks, or ?????? Any ideas about best
way to build it up?
Thanks for being such a great group !
