Above is a brass (I think) gear from the fine feed of my mill. One of the many gears that need replacing/fixing.
Notice the teeth laying over. I'd like to straighten those up. I was pounding on a few last night with a chisel and a hammer and I'm worried about shearing then right off.
Can I heat it up to soften it? Will that harden it? Will it just melt?
What will happen if I put a torch on this gear?
