Sorry, I should have posted full details with the picture.

There were no tool changes and the cutter was 3.5 mm diameter as the one on the right in the picture here :-  http://www.flickr.com/photos/22267456@N05/2547381165/
However, I reground the end to make it more of a 'ball nosed shape' ( this took some time to do as the cutter is solid carbide and I do not have a diamond wheel ). The feed rate was F450 and the spindle speed was 3000 rpm. I took approx. 1 hour to cut.

Thanks to everyone for looking at my postings, I hope they have been of interest.

Tweakie.

Don't get too excited Budman - I work in millimeters not Inches.

(The G-Code had a F300 feedrate and this was increased to 150% within Mach3)

Not strictly speaking Routing but more like Profiling. I thought you might like to see what happens when making wooden gears for wooden clocks and I get the tool lead-out in the wrong direction. As my old school reports used to say "Could do better".

More wooden gears for wooden clocks.

These little beauties have been profiled in one pass from 3.5mm plywood. A bit furry when cut (the plywood always seems damp this time of the year) but they soon clean up.

A few more. Experimenting with different tooth forms and diametral pitches.
