NEW Byers 18"x1"x584t complete Starmaster research drive, worm housing, clutch, motor, first $2500 takes it.
This is the last 18" gear that I have to sell. This is a $4000-5000 gear set, and includes the larger stainless
steel worm (shown in the photo with the tape measure). The worm housing alone (not counting the worm)
is a $1000+ option, and when you see it in person, you will understand. The clutch is bored out for
3.001" (for a 3.000" shaft).

Included is a very heavy duty Bodine synchronous motor installed (as shown) with all the reduction
gears. According to Ed Byers himself, who is now in his mid 70's, he is not making these larger gears any
longer, and he no longer stocks them. This is the same gear that Ed Byers used on his Series III mount.
Everything was made by Edward Byers Company.

Also willing to sell without the clutch, make offer if you do not need the clutch.

Buyer to pay actual shipping from upstate NY to anywhere in the civilized world.
