I made a mess like that with my wives ikea dresser. I used a magnet to hold them in place while I shimmied them back together.

(DK taps fingers on chin...)

Hmmmmm. DK thinks her solution is better.

**********

NOW, DK NEEDS TO PICK YER BRAINS, FOLKS.

She needs the equivalent of a "C" shaped gear (smooth outer edge, though, no notches or teeth), that, say, goes on an axle of 3/4 inch diameter or so (this dimension is not critical but must be in the range of 3/4-1 1/2 inches. The outside diameter is 4 inches. Like a miniature circular saw blade minus teeth, but with the inner hole extended to the edge in one place on one radius.

Preferably steel, with some strength, but no thicker than 1/8 inch, flat on both sides.

Imagine she's going to apply force to this just like it's a gear she's pulling off an axle, using a gear puller, it needs to have some strength for that force.

Now, go fill up on caffeine, or sugar, or fat, or exercise, or whatever you need, and then close your eyes and seek alpha waves, outside-the-box thinking.

Where can she get or make such a part?

I dare ya.

Imagine the "C" is stuck on the axle, and she's going to use that very gear puller in the picture in the above post (3 point) to pull it off the axle. But it has to have the opening to the edge.

Yes. I need the three points of support on the external edge for the three gear puller feet (or whatever they are called). Even thirds.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Just looked more closely and I can go down to just over quarter inch diameter on the inside hole. So I could start with this and the knockout hole.

So... last night, she dug through her bins 'n' barrels of parts 'n' pieces, and found these.

Close, but no dice.

A trip to Lowes is warranted.

IN OTHER NEWS:

ASAslider project 04

After we get the ball bearing unit free from the outer rail, we line up the INNER rail and ball bearing unit, and note some geometry.

Then, we cut some segments, using a hack saw and tin snips.

UP NEXT: HOW DK GOT THE BALL BEARINGS BACK IN... HER FAVORITE STEP IN THIS PROJECT... It's a solution that reminds her of many of the aspects of her favorite puzzle - the solution is simple, fast, robust.

DK ate her way through a very delicious box of dark chocolates, which was happy. But now, DK is paying for the pudge factor, which is less happy! Time to order some sushi goods... mmmmmmmmmm..........

IN OTHER NEWS:

ASAslider project 05

I fergot to finish my posts... got bizzy doin' stuff.

How did DK get tham balls back in?

She held it up sideways, and loaded balls on one side. Then, she took a piece of the bag the drawer slide came in and used it to wrap that side, while she flipped it 180 and loaded the other side.

Then, holding the wrapper tight, she slid the whole kaboodle into the outer rail track.

Once all the balls were into the outer rail track, she held the wrapper and kept sliding the ball bearing unit past the wrapper, then she pulled the wrapper out of the track.

Here ya go. Happy Friday, all y'all.

ASAslider project 06

Now, we take the smaller bits we sawed earlier, and put them together, making a sort of mini-rail-car on the outer rail:

I've been stalking this thread for a while now, and this particular development has me intrigued. I keep wondering where this particular development with the tracks is going.
