I like what I see. If the pattern is high on one and low on the other it means at least the middle of that wipe is in the middle of the tooth flank. Backlash can be tested with a piece of solder. Place a chunk of solder where you would hate to put your finger and run it through the gears. When out the other side it will be smashed thin in one spot. cut that through with scissors, and use a micrometer on it to measure the thickness. (or just compare it by feel to a feeler gauge. If even close all is well, run it. Jim

Thank you, that is encouraging. I will remember the solder idea, it is a very elegant method. The tractor has now reached the critical mass where it looks more like a tractor than a pile of parts. I am hoping to get it all together tomorrow and try it out. Zach
