Default Using a grommet as a gear !

I thought u would share this with you
I was repairing a small transistor radio where one of the tuning gears had fallen apart
Not have a suitable gear ( it fitted on a 6mm splined shaft ) I cut a gromet in halve and positioned it so it engaged with the cog driving the cap
Although It was a tight fit on the shaft I added some evo stick to hold it in place
It works a treat ! It's even started to cut its own teeth into the gromet
Prob won't last for ever but has restored an old radio to working condition which I think is what our hobby is all about
Cheers Pete
