Turning a gear blank Pattern

Recommended Posts

Goodness gracious. If that is as big as I think it is you are a very brave man.

Edit: had a look at your website and saw "turned patterns up to 7 ft dia". Amazing work, patternmaking has always intrigued me.

That's a little gear.

Truth be told, I got to measure finished, machined gears in that general size range. An appreciation for size comes when moving one with a fairly normal sized fork truck, and the steering is lose and light, touching the brakes causes a leaning feeling...Rules were ankle high or lower for a reason.

Awesome work.
