  • For gearheads

    I stumbled on some really excellent information on gears. It is in PDF format and can be saved to disk for later reference.

    That could be a useful reference someday Evan, thanks for posting the link.

    I have no plans that involve gearcutting at the moment, but information on a PDF file like this is so handy, as you can just print off the relevant page or so that's needed, and avoid damaging a good textbook with oily thumbprints in the workshop.

            Great info - thanks, Evan. It seems so often the case that the best sources of info are the makers of a product. "If you know how to use our product correctly and to the best benefit, we both do better business." Something like that.
            The curse of having precise measuring tools is being able to actually see how imperfect everything is.
