Completely gone. If I just needed some fixing up to get it working I would be selling it as a working machine.
If someone can laser, wire EDM, mill, etc. a new wheel, it'll be a really good saw for the money. Just about all parts are interchangable between this machine and the new W-9-1 so new replacement parts are easy to get. I planned to have the wheel made and a gear either broached or purchased from wells saw to complete it but it's just too big for the space we have and we dont need to cut things that big.
Consider what a functioning saw sells for.... Even buying the wheel outright, this is a great buy.
