Brian, that's great stuff. You are just great at figuring how to put a piece of metal in position for the tool to do it's work. That's what it's all about anyhow, eh?

Whiskey---After my all summer thrash on the "Rupnow Engine" I needed a simple project that I could complete in a day. I have been wondering about making these gears for some time now. I bought the miter gears that are on the "Rupnow Engine" because I didn't think I would be able to make them.

A great how to Brian. Certainly gives the information needed without huge calculus knowledge required :old:. I found Ivan Laws book to be very informative and useful to an old codger like me..

Brian I enjoyed following. I haven't made any myself and this will be a good thread for reference. Thanks for sharing. Nice job by the way.
