    Chad, if you look at the first post that Woodbutcher Jeremy had, it has a link to one that is $58.67.

    Jeremy, that is awesome.

    I've looked at the thread. They don't have that worm gear reducer. It was a refurbished unit.

    Does it have to be a 15 to 1 gear reducer? there is a 20 to 1 gear reducer at www.surpluscenter.com for $49.23 ! They also have 10 to 1 for $71.15.

    No it doesn't have to be 15:1. It just needs to gear down so rpms are around the 60-150rpms from what I've read. I did order my gear pump from Surplus Center. Thanks.
