  • Need a place to buy 1:1 bevel gears rreasonably please.

    Changing the gearing on the Gatling & had a set ordered from china & Canada, both were cancelled. McMaster Carr is more than I care to pay. Anyone know of a cheaper source in the U.S.?

    I made my own helical gears for the two gatling guns I built (.22 and .357mag) using my bridgeport cnc and gearotic motion software. The ones in the pic were cut using only a 1/16 endmill.

    Ebay has a lot of gears, many suitable for gatling guns, at real cheap prices.

    For scale reference, the housing is 4-3/8 OD

      ebay cancelled the 2 sets I had coming because of the problems in china. I had checked Amazon but the shipping was twice the gears but just did a general search & Amazon came up at $18/prime in stock for the pair. Nice job on yours. Mines a 9mm using glock happy sticks with a 22 coming behind it with a 550 rd mag. Is yours a copy of the 1877?

        The one in the pic is loosely a model of the 1876-1877 I didn't go crazy with exact scale appearance, only a close resemblance.

          The .357 one in the pic is 34-1/2 OAL and weighs in at 75lbs less the tripod.

          Here is a better pic

            Looks Great, nice job! Mine has the mag at 10 O'clock as the orif 1962 patent drawings which didn't wotk well then as they were gravity feed so I can have sights on top. Here's a place I didn't realise was in Japan the sent a quote in about an hour & gears were $18ea & not including shipping I'm sure https://khkgears.net
