    Default Encoder wheel

    Here's a hairy one for you.... and a long shot.

    My computer steering wheel has bit the dust. The fault is a cracked encoder wheel which allows it to slip on the motor shaft.

    Any ideas where to buy one or buy a device I can pull one out of ? I don't want to pay the ridiculous price they're asking for a used one.

    Wheel is 60 hole, 5/8" diameter x 1/8" shaft.


    I have thought of just super glue to the shaft but I ain't too sure how long that would last. What do you think ?

    Might be worth trying the washer trick I'd say.

    Makes sense to me ~ will give the part more rigidity than just gluing the small cross-section at the crack.....(note all the expensive replacement parts are metal, which would be a total fix)

    I ended up purchasing a metal one from Aliexpress $30.
    In the mean time I used loctite so I can use it and check for other problems and it seems to work fine.
