    Replacement Gear for Floppy Eject mechanism!

    The gear fits all early Sony floppy models with auto-inject. But best to open up and look at the gears. If you have 4 gears in the eject mechanism (all different size) then this replacement gear will work to replace the smallest one. It is the one that usually crumbles.

    The set of four was same gear... I have a set of four on eBay now if interested on discount per unit.

    No problem. I can tell you that if it was a known standard size, I would much rather pay the $0.25 each from China myself. I bought several from AliExpress to no avail. If you do find a replacement that's a win for everyone. You'd think I'm making a killing with the gears, but in reality not the case. The printing method requires ultra fine detail that only a few machines can achieve. And it's expensive. But the result is a perfectly matched strong gear. Good luck, and happy to help.

    That's kind of passive aggressive . I am not home but I can post after measuring tonite. I'm sure others who have bought already can post dimensions too. It's not like I'm keeping this secret. What I can't do, or won't do, just to be clear, is post the CAD for others to print. Because I spent a lot of time AND money refining the design.

    The 30122B is easy larger. That's a 16mm diameter.

    Hope this helps: I searched for gears for months and spent money on endless gears that did not work. In the end I had to develop my own. And learned a few things... Gears are finicky. The engagement from tooth to tooth needs to be perfect. The angle of the teeth are critical. Also the size. If you don't find an exact replacement , it won't work. There is not such thing as 'close enough' here, although somebody may prove me wrong some day.

  12. I have made available to everyone a replacement gear for 400k/800k (internal or external) floppy drives. this is to replace the tiny (smallest) gear of the eject mechanism which breaks over time. I have tested and works great! Comes in a set of 4 identical gears, repair up to four drives! http://shpws.me/AL9P

    Does anybody have a donor floppy eject motor that they want to give away to me? I really only need the black plastic enclosure, I managed to break mine and I can't further test of the gears although it looks like ithey will work very well!

    I ended up replacing the capacitors with Polys. I still need to fix the floppy drive before I boot her up, I hope these capacitors are similar spec!

    I was concerned about removing the board specifically. But now I realize I can recap without removing it.
