Found the culprit. The top gear set which holds on to the outer blade assembly shaft (bottom blade power) is attached to the shaft assembly by two set screws. However, there is no indention into the shaft for these set screws to lock into. The screws rely on the threads in the plastic gear to hold the screw tightly against the shaft in order to transfer power from the gear (which is of course attached to the motor) to the blade shaft assembly. Well, these screws were of course stripping the plastic gear so not really sure on how to properly sort this out. What would a proper method of attaching the gear to the shaft be?
