0.6 module involute cutters
« on: September 28, 2018, 06:02:18 PM »
Can anyone help, please?

I am trying to find some 0.6 module involute cutters to cut the gears for the Jupiter's magneto. The gears in question have 63 teeth and 28 teeth, giving a 2.25 to 1 reduction.

I ordered the two cutters via Aliexpress, they have not arrived after 6 weeks, so we have a payment dispute in progress for non delivery. My problem is, the only places I can find suppliers are also with Aliexpress and I don't want to go down that route again.

Do any of our MEM members have access to 0.6 module involute cutters and would it be possible to borrow them for a few days to cut my 63 teeth and 28 teeth gears. One gear is in Delrin and the other in soft mild steel EN1.

I have tried to identify other gear standards but none match the required tooth count and PCD, so 0.6 module is the only option

Thanks for looking

Mike

Pour yourself a good sized slug of glenfarclas 105 full cask strength single malt before looking

Hi Stuart

Thanks for the laugh. I did find that one. As you probably guessed, I am not that desperate.

Cheers

Mike :facepalm: :facepalm:

Since they are silly money. What about hpc gears they have what you want at a fraction of the cost. I will have a look in work on tuesday see if we have 0.6 mod cutters.

Thatís ok Mike

Guessed you had seen that it came up to easy

But we simply to please


Have you seen a program called gearotic ( itís ok done by art of mach3 fame )

It lets you put in the shaft spacing tooth counts and lets you check for fits etc

If you donít have it please post the shaft centres and I will run it though to see if any modest price cutters will work

But you could be making a two button form tool to cut the cutter yourself


Have fun in you quest to find the unicorn or pot of gold

I will tune up my Google fu and keep a look out

Thanks Dan.  Thats a possibility

I have several sets from ctc, used them a lot for brass and aluminum gears. I use Gearotic for quick calculations of gears, also the Ivan Law gear book.

Thanks Robbie.

Yes HPC can provide an off the shelf 28T gear in steel at a reasonable price, but the Delrin 63T is deeply dished so would need to be a one off special. Let's hope my luck is in on Tuesday

Cheers

Thanks Stuart and Crueby

I don't have Gearotic but I have checked for alternatives elsewhere. but not found anything yet. 43DP would be close but I ain't going to find those cutters anywhere. :ThumbsDown: :ThumbsDown:

The gear details are 63t 0.6 module 37.8 PCD, and 28T 0.6 module 16.8 PCD, shaft centres are 27.3 mm.

Cheers

Mike

It would be great if there were an affordable alternative

Full set on e-bay from Germany, Probably a bonded warehouse for far eastern products but £55 the set

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Involute-Gear-Cutters-Module-Milling-20-gear-cutter-0-6-Bis-6-0-HSS-udssr/183330424887?hash=item2aaf584837:m:mK-F2WVK3uuT-81QVuNLuEA

Hello Jason,

Yep, I found that one as well.  Actually, they were made in the USSR

If you read the small print the cutter which does 63t is missing from the set. About as much use as a chocolate teapot.

Cheers

Mike
