    Rolf,

    DROs are an incredible improvement in all sorts of tasks on the mill and lathe. I no longer pay any attention to the dials on the axes that have the DRO. Incredible relief from tedium. I have a two-axis DRO on my Monarch 10EE metal lathe. The mill I have has three axis, X and...

    Next came drilling the holes for the cuttouts, prior to scroll sawing. I centerpunched each hole center location and used forstner bits.


    And the finished scroll cut and spindle sanded cutouts. After scrolling the cutouts, I used a spindle sander, but the 1/2" spindle sleeve...

    Pivot holes were placed such that each gear would "stop" sanding at the correct finish diameter (visible in the second photo of the previous post). The gear base is 2" OD. The gears started at 3.375" OD and increased by two inches for the medium (5.375") and large (7.375")...

    I made a jig for my 4x36" belt sander table for sanding the gear and gear bases to finish size. To minimize the amount of sanding, I did the OD sanding after cutting out the teeth. No point in sanding wood that won't remain.

    The jig consisted of a base which had the key on the...

    Then came cutting the gear teeth. For this, I used a 1/8" wide, 14tpi blade, again in the Carter Stabilizer guide. The curves on the gears did not require use of the 1/8" blade, but making the turns inside to the bottom did.

    After the tooth profiles were cut, I cleaned...

    I cut the gear blank and gear base rough ODs on the bandsaw. Shown is the Carter Band Saw Stabilizer I use for blades under 1/4" which allows effective scroll-like cutting, especially with the 1/8", 14tpi blade. It is a single, top guide, no bottom guides, which lets the blade twist a bit....

    Thanks. I've changed paths in favor of a gear toy, but it is involved enough I have found something for her birthday and will complete the gear toy for a Christmas present.

    Horse Puzzle or Toy Patterns

    My granddaughter's fifth birthday is coming up and I would like to make a set of two or three horses for her. Either jigsawed but pinned together so there is movement but not a puzzle that comes apart. Or just some horse figures. I am interested in finding some patterns. She has been into My Little...
