Thanks for the fix. You described the problem with mine exactly. I 'knurled' the shaft with a corner of a set of vice grips and now it seems to be working fine. It seems odd that the pot metal gear is just pressed to the shaft. It would be better if the shaft and gear had matching shapes that nested together.
