Thanks Lyn, I am hoping the gears from Russell might do the job.  Good to know a source of gears from outboard motors.
Just get doing and make swarf, you can decide what its going to be later.   :thumbup:

If you end up needing another set, I think I also have a couple of old outboard gearboxes kicking around. Whether I can FIND them or not, remains to be seen...!
Cheers!

That would be very welcome Ade now I think these are a viable option.

I managed to pay RussellT a visit this afternoon.  Bit of a natter and collect the gears he had found for me.   Got a bit more than just the two gears, the rest of the shaft and the reversing gear.  I didnít know that was how they reversed the prop on an outboard by sliding a selector to pick one of the two bevel gears.   Anyhow, this looks a great place to start for the milling head.

If anyone is interested Russell kept the prop and we recon it would be a good basis for a home made twin tube, should anyone be so inclined.
