Brass Clock Gears
« on: January 15, 2009, 08:31:06 PM »
Thought I would post my recent progress with the CNC mill for cutting gears and crossing out the gears with the new setup.  Since I have a long post with history I'll just provide the URL but towards the end you will see the gears recently cut and they turned out nice.  Certainly would not have been possibel without the help of the Mach team.

A few more pictures of the progress.  The verge is only a protoype in brass.  I will be machining that out of tool steel soon and hope I don't break to many end mills.  The rack, snail, and verge will be entirely CNC along with a few of the gears.  All of the gear crossings will be CNC.

Best Regards.

Nice stuff.  The hopes of making a clock and some day a pocket watch are what got me started in this whole CNC thing.  Until I get a 4th axis, I think I'm still years away.
