  • Wooden Gears

    The propect of repetitively cutting individual teeth on wooden gears is too dreary a prospect for me to face! Can anyone think of a way to automate gear production?

    Stack cut segments and glue up? 1/4 or 1/6 or even 1/8 the cutting, but your mistakes propogate around the clock

      You can make a jig. that will have a centre pivot.
      The jig should have a table that will slide in and out on the saw table.
      The side of the jig could have indexing marks. Each notch would allow you to cut a tooth.
      I have an article someone on a jig that uses a router to cut teeth if you are interested I will humt it down and send it to you. I am not using it anymore.

        Great idea, Carl! A jig like that should work a treat on a bandsaw with a mitre track .

        I'd still be interested in a copy of that article if it's not too much trouble, please.

        Thanks

          Jig for making gears

          Carl,
          There was an article in Fine Woodworking that goes back several years that also talked about making gears with a router. Is that the one you're referring to? If not I'll send it to Gill so she will have more ideas to look at.

              Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

              We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

              What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
