Question: Rockwell Portaband Saw
After my saw stopped cutting, I disassembled it to the point of realizing the bronze drive gear( that mates to the worm drive from the motor) is terribly worn. I have managed to extract the shaft with the gear on one end and the chain sprocket on the other, but am at a loss on how to remove said gear. It seems there is some sort of key? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
