Looks like excellent work, my friend.

Are you using a software to draw these up or are the pre-prepared dxfs?

Hi Dave,

Have you started drinking Guinness now ?.

Some of the profiles have been created using the online Gear template generator at http://woodgears.ca/gear_cutting/template.html and some have been created using GearDXF from Forest Moon Productions at http://www.forestmoon.com/Software/GearDXF/. The tool radius offset function and subsequent GCode was created using CamBam at http://www.brusselsprout.org/CAMBAM/download.htm.

It's all free stuff just waiting for you to download.

Best regards.

While I still had a small piece of plywood left over I thought I would try this - they almost fit perfectly. (If I had a job I could be dangerous).

Close enough! Paint a picture on them (or route a pic!) and start selling them -  ;D

I am back on the clock gears again but I have learn't (lesson 1) that not all plywood uses glue that is strong enough to stop de-lamination when cutting fine detail.

The escapement wheel on the right was just a test, as in practice it would be made from 5 ply not 3 ply and certainly a lot better quality plywood.

The wheel on the left was cut from 'trafolite' (I really love this stuff) but it was held to the table with low tack double sided sticky and it moved on the very last cut (oh bother I said). I tried stronger adhesion tape but the next wheel, which cut perfectly, broke whilst I was trying to prise it free from the table (oh bother, again). The second lesson learn't was that I need a selection of double sided tape with varying adhesion properties.

Thought you might like to see these pictures anyway - even though they are rubbish.

The overall diameter of the wheel is 60mm.

Good suggestion about the coin - I will try to remember to do that.
