I'm about to start on a run of gear sleeves for the Senator big dogs-- the 116A, 116, 117, and 118. They will be made from 416 stainless steel and heat treated to 42c Rockwell.
Both sleeves have an extra tooth on them. I can't guarantee what color they will be after heat treating. They may be shiny, off color or dark colored. These are a drop in replacement for the stock brass sleeves. The flats will not go down to the ratchet, but they will be low enough so you can use the brass or steel main gear.
These big boys will be under $50 a piece, but not by much.
So just a quick show of hands... I won't hound you, or throw sticks at you if you don't end up committing. I just need a rough estimate.
Thanks!

I will definately be interested in sleeves for both the 116L, and 117L.  I may not be able to buy a bunch of them up front, but I'd say I would go through about 10-20 for the 117 and 5-15 for the 116 annually, based on last year's service records.  However, I would likely only be able to get 2 (or so) of each to start with.

I want to update everyone and let you know that this sleeve project is about half way done. I don't have a firm completion date.

Thanks for the update and thanks for your time/effort to make these possible.
Firm believer in not rushing things if you don't have to.

I still want a 12/0 gear sleeve, please & thank you.
