Default My Theta Data Basic Draw won't Open

After searching I see many have had the same issue fixed by installing a new harder plastic drive wheel mechanism sold by Thomas in Hong Kong. I think his User name is Tube-Lover?

Does anyone know if these are still availible?
Would someone share his e-mail?

Thanx.

Thomas in Hong Kong's email address doesn't matter any more.

These plastic drive wheels are readily available on e-Bay for ~$18 buck.

This ended up being an easy 20 min project with the instructions posted by tubenut. I did add a little washer for smoother operation.

Thanx

Thanks for all the help. Order the wheel on Ebay ($18 including shipping) last Wednesday from China, It came today. Thank to the above instructions, I repaired it in about 15 min.

New member here- just posted a new thread looking for this drive gear (I assume it is the same one- opens the drawer)...

Anyway, if you would, please provide some contact info to get this gear! My Theta works great except for the gear...

Once I have it, I will post the contact info on my thread for others to find.

Thanks in advance to everyone!
