So the search continues: I am still searching for brass rack-and-pinion gears, preferably available locally. among other necessary parts.
Perhaps something you want has been archived here:

I have been able to locate brass rack but no luck on getting matching pinions made from brass. I would appreciate any leads you may turn up.

What was the "wood and brass" group you mentioned earlier? Do they have an archive?
