There is now about 4 guys who said they would want one now, I just received one of varios 36/47 by mistake, wanted a hub, got a gear. I have to agree with kglassman, they are heavier, and also of softer metal, and only drilled and tapped from one side so you can't easiely flip them over and get double use from them, and they don't include a packet of the sticky lube I use with mine either which I think heps lead to the long life I am seeing with the ones I am using. But they are 35 bucks less then what I can sell them for but I can't put out the bucks to make 1000 of them either like they can and sit on my shelf!!!
If everybody who expressed interest in the ones I make will PM me or post here they want one or 2 and there is enough interest I'll get a batch in process.
Butch, you mentioned you may want a couple, you still game or did you go the vario route? In a way I am happy to see Vario finally started making such, I did not do such to make money on them, I just wanted a gear that would not fail in 2-10 flights like the plastic ones were doing to me.
