    I took a run and measure the free play in my auger. It's about 3/4" taken from the highest point of the auger. Hope this help a little. Took a few pictures of mine but if like you said 5 year old it would be the same.

    Yes that looks just like my machine but mine had more like an inch and a half of play so thank you that does help. I cleaned up the parts and took a close look at things and the slot in the shaft is badly beat up while the gearbox looks good so I'm a happy camper.

    Now I am looking for a good way to repair the key slot in the shaft. I am considering using some silver solder in the slot and then filing it to fit. It will be tough because the shaft needs to slide smoothly in the gearbox when assembled. At worse I will need to get a new shaft which is a site cheaper than a new gearbox.
