    Question Spare gear box for skywatcher 127 altazimuth mount



    Hi all. I’ve cable wrapped my mount and bust the first plastic gear in the azimuth gear box. Does anyone know where to get a replacement? Or has a damaged mount that could sacrifice the altitude or azimuth box as both are the same. I’m uk based.
