Default something interesting

this looks interesting and i may consider getting it
this guy sell the plans to make gears ...well this is his words
............
"I sell instructions to use the technique to make spur or helical gears. The "jig" is very simple to make and the gear blank moves over the blade in such a way that the correct tooth profile is automatically generated. Once you see how it works it is very simple and fun to make gears of various sizes for clocks, kinetic sculpture, toys, window blinds, and anything else you can dream up. You can vary the number of teeth, pitch, pressure angle (tooth shape), and helix angle. The various dimensions are computed in an Excel spreadsheet. I am working on expanding the technique to include more types of gears to make it even more useful and fun. When you buy the technique you will get free future updates to the technique. No special tools or cutters are required, you just need a drill press, benchtop disc sander, and either a tablesaw or scrollsaw. A router table can also be used, but is limited to just the spur gears."..

Thanks Trimax for starting this thread. "Gears" has pictures and videos showing what the technique is capable of producing, and the "Gear Making" page is for customers only. I have placed an ad on this forum which should show up by tomorrow. Here are a few pictures of some of my gears I have made. Most of these were made using a tablesaw including the tiny 6-tooth pinion. Because of the name of this forum, I should point out that only the spur gears (straight tooth) can be made on a router table.

HI Steve, WELCOME to the forum

Great job, ,below you will see how I make some knobs on the router lathe, not to far of a stretch to make gears the same way,not as nice as yours but just one more way the lathe will also do the rope type items with the built in indexing ..

Hi Steve,

Welcome to the router forums.

Thanks for pointing that out about the "gear making". That's what I had clicked on. Very nice site BTW.
