HP-97 printer gear


Dear friends,

Anyone know where do I find a replacement for that middle gear on the HP-97 printer? I already read the articles here about it, but I live in Brazil and don't know where to find gears like this.

Its plastic material simply desintegrated!

Any advice is welcome.

Best regards,




I have bought some of those in:
They ship worldwide. Part number is G46-30




Thanks for the tip. I suppose that of the three items showing (G46-30, G46-30-Q12, G46-30-Q14) it is the first one, but I cannot download its datasheet in PDF - my browser (Opera) shows only a blank page, it downloads nothing. I have the Acrobat installed, the problem isn't here, but the web page doesn't support my browser for shure. Can anyone post a direct link?

Thanks and best regards,



Here's an article I wrote some time ago about 97 gear replacement. http://www.hpmuseum.org/cgi-sys/cgiwrap/hpmuseum/articles.cgi?read=84 I think that PIC has a minimum order size so the $7/gear figure is low unless you're ordering a lot.

Thanks, I already saw your excellent article. I was first trying to find some local suplier here in Brazil, but it is very hard to find...

Best regards,



They're nearly impossible to find. I spent a great deal of time looking for them until I came across PIC. I still haven't found another source for them (4 years later) and the only other option that I came up with was to have them custom manufactured.
