  • I wanna make one of these gizmos

    I've seen this a few times on the internet but without any info. Searched and came up empty. What's it called and how is it machined? Yes I know it's a gear..

      You might want to get a 3D printer. Unlikely you'd get anything like that done without proper big-boy gear cutting equipment otherwise.

              Yeah, great, thanks. I just lost three hours of time watching videos, starting with the gear vids. The gears are excellent.

              The machining to produce some of those gears should put some folks here in their place. Master pieces IMO JR

                For people with NOTHING to freaking do !
                I have about 1000 projects to finish before I make a bullsh|t grinder.

                  Yeah, the device in the video is 3D printed.

                  For just a little more, you can do it yourself!

                    I dont think its 3d printed. I've seen it years ago.
                    still searching for info on it

                      I just watched the 3D cube and I may be out to lunch but this one seems like it's made up of fairly simple bevel gears that all connect on the center block. And that they are cut on the outer faces to form a cube at given rotation points. If that is the case then it doesn't seem like it would be totally impossible for a machinist to make. The bevel gears appear to have fairly unique angles mind you. So it's not just a case of ordering up some catalog numbers from Boston Gear or similar sources.

                      For myself that has yet to make a gear at all I think I'd be so stoked at getting the gears to work at all that the thought of then carving the cluster into a cube would fill me with sadness.....

                        If there was a machined version from some years back it supports the idea that it's "simple" bevel gears other than the specific bevel angles.

                          I've made tons of gears and I have hundreds of gear cutters. But where and how to begin is the question..
                          where is sir john? I sure miss the old bloke..
