You might recall, in another post, I showed a gear blank that I made up for an engine project I'm starting on.
I had the internal teeth wire EDM'd at work. Thanks guys!
Also, John Stevenson helped with the tooth profile out of Gearotic. Thanks John!
Here's how it came out:
I've ordered the mating gear. $17.00 online.
The tooth profile looks good, but the mating will tell.

That looks to be a very nice job indeed.

Sid, out of interest how long did it take to cut it and approx sizes and thickness ?

It looks the biz.

The outside diameter is 3.75. It's .25 thick. The internal teeth took about an hour to run on the wire. The guy did two passes. One the clear the blank and a clean up cut.
