Thought maybe the folks here would enjoy this!

There must be a lot of money in mining gold! :)

Seeing as they don't quote the helical angle I'm guessing 3/4 DP for tooth form.

Dang! Just look at that big toothy grin! :-P

A couple of years ago I made one like that on my Sherline but just a few inches shorter!
The tolerance is impressive because they had to maintain set temps for measuring so it wouldn't heat up too much.

Isn't. Pd = number of teeth/ pitch diameter

Number teeth = 344

Pitch diameter approximately = 522-3.4= 518.6

Pd = 0.6633

Oops, there's only 343 teeth. Back to the drawing board.
