It's always a treat when things work right the first time. Here's the two big gears from a few blogs back being run in the pedestal. This is the time to check the teeth for meshing. Being just a little bit off centre on the shaft holes can wreck havoc on the operation. There is only so much you can do with the gears at this point, so if you need to increase the distance between shafts, now is the time to find out before you build the large components.
