I couldn't find a source, and I know one other member chased TEAC Aus for a while only to be told after months that they can't get them.

Your best bet is trying to track down someone in the UK or Europe who will forward on a package from https://www.chsinteractive.co.uk

If the 2 step gear is gone I strongly suggest you replace the gear "b" also. They are made from the same material and age at a similar rate. I got few months use after replacing the two step before the transport started skipping again - the first sign that the "b" gear was dying.

ps you might want to try the contact at TEAC WA mentioned in an earlier post by Centre5

Should have a source for the 2 step gear. Audio Marketing in Sydney are holding some stock as spares for the KAV 300 cd player. Need one for my KPS 28c...

hopefully in the post tommorrow.

Glad to hear you've found a local source. If your transport uses the Gear "B" and you can get hold of one I'd definitely do so.

Since I haven't seen anyone post this yet, I have just been told by Teac that the 2-step gear that so frequently loses teeth in the loading mech of the VRDS-T1/VRDS-7, as well as the Krell KAV-300CD/250CD & Copland 288, is once again available from Teac USA, and for pretty cheap. Just placed the order, and will write again if it doesn't turn out to be a correct substitute, since the number their parts person responded with what googles out to be for the VRDS-10(but not VRDS-10SE, which I do have a service manual for & can say is not the right gear). Here is the reply from Teac parts, with my original inquiry below it:

Dear Customer,

The 2 step gear, part number M02646000A, is available at $10.97 each. Please add $5 for postage/freight per order for UPS ground service within CONTINENTAL USA plus local and state sales taxes where applicable. Prices quoted are only for SHIPMENT WITHIN THE U.S. or its territories.

We are required to collect state sales tax for residents of Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Virginia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington, Minnesota and others, regardless of shipping point. If you do not want us to collect state sales tax by adding it to your order, we must have a COPY of your resale or tax exempt certificate at the time the order is placed.

Please, NO CODs or PERSONAL CHECKS, but we can accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or money orders. There is a $10 minimum for credit card orders.

When you place your order, please include a copy of this response, your name, a U.S. shipping address, and day-time telephone number.

Thank you

Gary Candelas

CONFIRMED! The replacement gear arrived from Teac USA, and was a perfect fit in the Krell KAV300CD needing it. Looks like it may even be a more durable material, though not completely sure about that. So, no more orphan VRDS-T1 & related units.

Default Price update

I have a VRDS 10 that curently works without any problems, but it is a little elderly and i thought after reading this thread that it might be prudent to order a spare gear set before the stock disappears completely. I looked on the CHS website but they now want 43.86 (just over 70 USD) for the 5801571100 gear!

Well, I'd be a bit surprised if you couldn't order it from Teac USA & just pay some extra bit of shipping. The parts guy is very responsive to emails.

Default TEAC VRDs1/7 gears

Hi all,
I have ordered some of these gears from CHS and this is what I find.
Pt Nrs 29001J and 29001K are the gears for the CD mechanism laser sled that fit on the rear R/Hand of the mechanism.
I think Pt Nr 29060G is the gear wheel for the Tray and I am about to order one to see if I am right. An expensive way of finding out I know, but what can you do.
Will report back here when completed.

Default VRDS Gear

Hi all,
Well I tried ordering some of these gears from TEAC USA and they referred me straight back to TEAC UK who referred me to Charles Hyde, which is where I had already ordered a gear from at a final cost of 49.15 ($79.21) It is the correct gear and has been installed in a Digital Audio Company (DAC) CD player and all works fine, however I am the one who has to explain to the customer why a small plastic gear cost that much. C'est la vie!
