Hello TTer's with Ring Rotors

I am seeking ideas, tricks or suggestions about the Tic Rotors in use 
today.  Seems the biggest challenge I run into with these rotors is the 
problem of keeping the gear teeth engaged.  After some use, the ring 
either gets out of round (hard to believe!) or the teeth tend to disengage 
for some reason and the antenna rotation ends as it goes into a gap in the 
teeth.  Motor supports are loosing over time or what?  After this 
condition develops, any suggestion as to how to get it re-aligned?

I need some suggestions regarding maintenance of these rotors.  Tell me 
your stories, problems and issues with these rotors - would love to hear 
of your experiences with these things!  Thanks!  Please reply directly.


Mark, K1RX
