Hiya folks,
I need to find a router bit which will cut the profile of a machine gear. I need the bit to cut a diemetral pitch of 8. That's a specific size of gear tooth.

You see, I've designed the workings for a grand-father clock (I'm an engineer by trade) and I want to make the whole thing from wood. I've looked at cutting the gear profiles with a scroll saw but that's just not precise enough to yield accurate time. I came up with a way to mass produce the gears, I think, if only I could find that router bit.

Yes, I have talked to two manufacturers about a custom profile. To date, I've had no's a complicated profile.
