need source for rack and pinion in canada

need source a good source for rack and pinion in grears ontario canada,
20 pitch with 14 1/2° Pressure Angle Spur Gears or 20° pitch dia of 1"
looking for pre drilled Ready-Mount Gear Racks ...
looking for hardned racks if price is good.

try www.stdsteel.com/gear.htm
From the Mechmate forum really cheap.

IMO it isn't worth your time to screw around with ready mount gear rack. Just spot weld it to your frame. It doesn't wear that quickly, and when it does just tear it off and 2 minutes with a grinder and you are good to go!

IMO, in theory it sound wondeful ...but its not so in all cases... doesnt work so well if the frame is aluminum

Lol, I guess you need some special rod that can weld steel to aluminum then...

Try CBS Equipment for rack & pinions.
Six locations in Ontario, helpful to deal with, & have a web site you can Google.
PS...(For that steel to aluminum welded connection, you need to fill a hollow elderberry twig with iron filings & wrap with aluminum foil. ------This will

work on machines that have AC straight polarity settings.)

old post i know, but was searching and found it. You could make small clamps that hold it down with bolts, without actually having holes in the rack.
