The SKYTEC gear B is an ultra stable, precision milled gear made from the self lubricating polymer Delrin. In addition to the fact that Delrin is a lot stronger than the plastic used for manufacturing the stock gears, the SKYTEC gear A is also thicker- which makes it even more stable. SKYTEC gears are the only CNC milled gears for the Big Lama in a market dominated by injection molded products.
The immense manufacturing effort translates into unmatched precision.
The SKYTEC outer shaft gear B is available in two versions:
Version 1 uses the original stock bearing while Version 2 has a recess for a significantly larger SKYTEC high quality bearing from SBN Japan. The use of this bearing (identical to the one used in the SKYTEC upper bearing housing) offers several advantages over the stock bearing – from more smoothness over less noise to less friction.
Due to Delrin being a self-lubricating polymer, the M3x3 set screws need to be secured with CA glue (regular thread locker will not bond the screw and the gear). It is important to be careful not to over tighten the set screws – this usually results in wobbling gears.
The price noted above refers to the gear WITHOUT a bearing. The gears are also available WITH bearing included for an additional 5.00$ (Version 2 ONLY!)
