  Involute gear cutters can be expensive.  Sometimes not so much if you can't buy a gear.  And sometimes the price of a gear can pay for the cutter.  I used to snap them up at auction cheap, others not knowing or caring what they are.

Absolutely. I got this mill with all the goodies for 500 bucks. I had run a vertical mill and was actually wanting one worse than this one but this was the only one for sale around here and the price couldn't be beat so I snatched it up and youtubed the xxxx out of it to learn how to operate it. Ruined the first 2 gear blanks learning the dividing head. Makes nice keyways. lol

What kind of machine did you desire?  Word to the wise, you can't swear hereabouts.  Thomas, I have a armature cutter that works on the same principal....

I was trying to find a decent American made vertical mill. No Chinese xxxx is allowed in my shop. But these mills bring 3000 bucks around here IF you can find one.
