Meade LX50 damaged gear help

Recommended Posts

Hello SGL

I wonder if anyone could help and advise where I could obtain a replacement gear for my LX50.

In the recent stormy weather I forgot to bring in my 10" LX50 and it blew over in the wind and damaged the plastic gears on the delineation as shown in the picture.

I have read that there was a upgraded version of gears that could be obtained once upon a time. Can anyone help sourcing replacement gears or the number of teeth on the cogs?



Many thanks

Hello Paul.

Do you still have the broken off part of the gear and is it just one piece? If so, and you have no luck easily sourcing a replacement, I'm pretty sure I could mend it for you.  :icon_biggrin:
