While cleaning out the hangar I realized I have 3 sets of aluminum gear I don't plan on using.
These are not Grove, not gundrilled and not $1500 each. I need $500 each.
One came with a Pitts S1 project
One came with a Pitts S2 project
One came with a Starduster Too project.
You can PM or Email me for details and dimensions on each.

Acroduster Too gear was sold to MTChris.
Starduster Too gear is too big for an AD Too.
Still have the Starduster Too gear and the Pitts S1 gear.
The Pitts S1 gear is out of thinner material than the Grove dimension (3/4" vs 7/8"). It would be well suited on a Smith Miniplane, Baby Lakes or a lite Pitts.

The S1 gear is the same dimension as on the Grove site but 3/4" thick and weighs 18# per the Toledo (scale), groved for brake lines, not gun-drilled and not $1525. About 5" taller than what Grove lists for the Baby Lakes.

They look great but my Pitts will be a little heavier than 1100# with me and gas in it so I am going the RV style gear route.
