You SketchUp users will want to grab his SU model of the jig ... an

Check it out ... you will be glad you did.
LOL ...but my BB doesn't have a keyboard.
Guy is amazing with his jig making, logical and methodical, two
qualities dear to my own heart.
The table saw "gear cutting" jig is also worth a look ... always wanted
an "Alice in Wonderland" pocket watch ... maybe cocabolo?
And for us unintelligent, non-resourceful folks, who have unreasonable
difficulties drawing precise involute gear teeth with SU, there are
(free) tools like
that produce DXF files of gears for use with DummyCAD (and other software).
I have multiple cad packages that can do that.
I have a excel spread sheet that generates gears and the output
can be imported for a gear in my cad. Kinda neat. I made some
spiral gears that hang from a line and dangle below.

Slightly OT, but do any of you who play with gears have a suggestion for
