Title: cutting accurate wooden wheels
Post by: joe on December 23, 2005, 01:23:20 AM
I once read an article on how to cut wooden wheels using a router.  Does anyone have any information on how to do this?  I am in the middle of making my first wooden-wheeled clock and need help with cutting the gear teeth.  thanks, joe

I have a prototype I am building and would like to learn the best way to make a template or devise a process to cut out multiple speaker holes precisely?

The dimensions are:
Overall Outside Diameter 2.36"    R Programming Training (  |  SAS Training (  |  Android Online Training ( | Weblogic Online Training ( |  Mongodb Online Training ( | Mongodb Admin Online Training (  |   SQL Online Training (
Baffle Cutout Diameter 1.89"

I plan to mount these from the inside of a box, using nice perforated aluminum grills cut to size.

I have a Dremel for now, was thinking of using the 543 carbide cutting/shaping wheel. The wood is soft, for now cigar boxes.
Open to suggestions on better tools and processes to accomplish.

My thoughts are to make a wooden template out of balsa so I can trace out the speaker holes on various boxes.
