    Spur gears

    Hi all, does anyone know where I could find in the uk suppliers of plastic gears. I'm looking for various sizes to build a new yoke column base and other stuff. Maplin ones are no good as they are to small and the range isn't that good.

    also does anyone have any suggestions of the best gear ratio for the yoke base between the pivot on the column and a potentiometer at the moment I'm thinking possibly a 5:1 as the column angle of movement isn't that much

    thanks all
