HP-97 Aluminum Printer Gear - aj04062 - 09-15-2010

I saw a few days ago a listing on tha auction site for a replica idler gear for these printers. The price was reasonable when compared to Katie's method (given the mods required)

I was going to buy one tonight but the listing is gone. I don't know if it just expired or he is done selling. Has anyone bought one and has this guys contact information?

Thanks in advance.

You might be able to get the info you need by searching completed auctions.

The seller's eBay name is davehal2001 and his real name is Dave Bowman, dmbowman@mchsi.com. I have one of those idler gears, and it works perfectly. I also bought a perfectly restored HP 97 from him. I recommend him without reservation.

I wish to confirm what we said Michael, gears supplied by davehal2001 are the best. Some time ago a French friend (hello Etienne) gave me two brass gears, good but noisy, then I bought a German company. I sold several HP-97, and plans to sell other, all with this particular gear. I have so many original plastic (?) idle gears in good condition: if anyone is interested can contact me directly.
Greetings to all

Thank you ALL,

I will get a hold of Dave.

Hey Ignazio, have you seen my last email regarding my troubled 65?
