help - desperate - plastic drive assembly - need solution

#271848 by jadamowicz » Tue Jun 30, 2020 11:00 am

Hi All,

My little round plastic drive assembly on my Gilmer drive unit (usually a $8-$10 part) broke, and Shopsmith no longer sells it.

They can only ask me to convert to the new Poly-v and new Quill for $450+ NOOOO!!!

I am dead in the water for a little plastic coupler.
this thing:

Does anyone have one, know where I can get one, or make one?
Willing to pay handsomely, and quickly!

email jadamowicz67@gmail.com

Thank you!

I am a bit unsure of this, but is not the nylon piece in the gilmer quill merely a dust cap?(or is that the model 10?)

the piece is smooth on the inside, at both ends, so it is not "driving" anything. It may very well just be a "dust preventer" or "alignment assistant"....if anyone knows for sure, that would help me determine how I should proceed.

thank you!

Now that the model 10 has been eliminated, it fer sure is only a dust cap.

Broken? post a pix of the pieces. Maybe cya glue will be thy solution.

I would think a good cleaning and then a filler type epoxy to keep it together and prevent any further deterioration.

I would degunk it, wash with alcohol, then sparingly attempt to cya glue the cracks back together.

THEN using strips of heavy duty alumunum foil, glue the foil tight to the outside with glue between the layers of a spiral wrap.

May work.

Use acetone to get the glue off thy fingers. :D

Ya cannot hurt it much further. ;)



If all fails. simply leave it off. :cool:

You can run your Mark 5 without it. It is the Nylon Collar added to the Drive Sleeve about the time of the change to the "B" Headstock. It is Part Number B3408 and was listed in the 10-55 Manual's parts list but not shown in the exploded parts diagram until the 10-56 Manual.

In the 1974 Supplement to the Mark V Parts List it was explained as follows

In 1959, a nylon cap (3408) was added to the end of the (202100) Drive Sleeve Assembly. This was primarily a noise suppressor and did not materially change the mechanical operations.

Some of the changes by date were not always correct.

I am wondering if a piece of heat shrink tubing would work to hold it together. Preferably the dual walled adhesive lined type.
