My grinder recently stopped working properly. I opened it up and it turns out a bearing and the spiral bevel gear are worn. The bearing has a model number on it and I can easily get a new one (pennies). However I can't find anywhere that has a replacement bevel gear. Perhaps someone here can help me with that. The machine is a powercraft 'pag 230/2100k'. I know it isn't a proper brand, but I really like it, it is a bit of a beast and rather that chuck it I was hoping that for a few quid I could fix it.

The manual does list the spindle & pinion as spare parts ... http://doc.ferm.com/Servotool/documents/AGM6015%20Ma-GB-IRE%20%200705-15.pdf

Wasn't powercraft an aldi brand, before the Workzone? I am sure I had a powercraft drill from them years ago.

I don't know whose brand it is tbh. I bought it off 'tinternet about 10 years ago. I think I paid £19 for it (brand new). It came in a box with several discs and the release wrench. The box was cracked so it couldn't be sold to customers in a shop.

At 2100W it is a bit of a beast, it takes 9" discs and it's not something you can hold with one hand. Sadly I ruined it when I was cutting the cement from in-between breeze blocks and the top bearing got buggered. The dust got in the bearing so I cleaned it at the time (WD40 does wonders) and put it together when I should have replaced it. There must have been a slight play in it which buggered the gear over time.

To be honest I doubt you did anything, it's a basic DIY brand tool, ideal for light use but you probably just wore it out. 10 years is good going. It won't be long before lidl or aldi do another 9" grinder, pick one up, I bet you will get another 10 years.
