Hi everyone, do any of you know where I can buy spare 0.8 gear rings for Heden M21VE-L's? PLC has them but they're twice the cost ($120) of other gear rings ($60) and I'm not sure why. Hope to have a couple spares on hand.

 

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Did you contact Heden directly? Magnus is usually happy to sell direct and I have always found it cheaper even with shipping.

Where on PLC's website did you see $120 per gear? Right on the website, sets of three gears are $140 and individuals are $60. Email or call them to check as the $120 price you said they charge doesn't seem right. As Jens said, the wide version of the .8 (32 pitch) gear which you might need for lenses that have a lot of barrel travel might possibly be that much but not the standard width.

Hi guys thanks for the info and replies. Prior to posting I did contact plc directly. Also asked them to double check the price. Or if it was a 3 pack despite the quote saying it was for each. Doesn't make sense but in the interest of time I looking for alternates. Thanks for the suggestions!

Just received confirmation. 0.8 gears are twice the price of all others gears at PLC and aren't listed in their website. Hopefully those others places will have them cheaper.

Must be twice the price because it's the size everyone needs.

Hello Everyone,

 

Every motor we sell comes with a 0.8 gear.

 

Rarely we get a request to purchase a separate 0.8 gear so we have to custom order these from Heden,

 

We checked again and our cost for the 0.8 Gear is actually More than the entire 0.4, 05, 06 Gear Set to buy.
