Canon 814 or 1014 spare part wanted

Post by Silverdream » Fri Jun 08, 2018 2:03 am

Is there anyone out there that has a Canon 814 or 1014 that's being wrecked for spares? The silent models.
I need one of the plastic gears that drives the frame and footage counter. This is from the model with the two circular dials.
Unfortunately mine has a broken tooth. I was thinking maybe I could fix the tooth but the dentists here are so darn expensive. :D
Alternatively, has anyone had success in repairing a gear? This one has quite fine teeth. The gear is 10mm diameter and 1 mm thick and the teeth are bevelled slightly.
Sure, Canon Super 8 camera lenses are great quality but the design and serviceability of the camera should have been a lot better. :(

Maybe I'll have a go at making a new gear. Wonder if anyone has had success with moulding a fine tooth gear?
This Canon camera is way to complicatedly (big word here) designed! These bloody engineers should stick to drawing rockets!

Since it seems no one has a scrap Canon 814 or 1014 available for parts I am thinking of scraping my Canon 1014.
If you need a part let me know which part you want and if I get enough different parts wanted I won't bother to repair my camera.

Seems like that might be a good project for a 3D printer...

Will2,
This is a very fine toothed plastic gear. It's 18mm diameter, 1mm thick, with 40 teeth of 1 mm tooth depth and helical cut.
One would need a very high resolution 3D printer I think. Was going to try epoxy casting but I've got my doubts about how long the gear would last.
Maybe I should try a clock parts supplier but I was hoping someone would have some junker 814 or 1014 camera out there.
Thanks for your suggestion though.
