This to That (Glue Advice) Gear template generator. This free online gear template generator is designed for making scale accurate paper gear templates which you can glue onto wood and then cut out with a bandsaw.

Gear template generator

I recommend printing the gears with an ink jet printer. Even cheap ink jet printers print very scale accurate but Not all laser printers are accurate. This is the new version (as of September 2015). You can still access the old Flash based version Getting the printout to scale correctly Different browsers print at different scales depending on browser type and printer configuration. Some notes about gear design and this gear template generator This template generator is intended for generating paper templates for cutting low precision gears from plywood, phenolic, or other suitable materials with a band saw.

This gear template generator generates shapes for involute spur gears. The gear tooth generation is not perfect. Rack and pinion gearing You can also generate rack and pinion gears. Any questions? Diamond Drag Engravers by J & M Diamond Tool, Inc. F-Engrave. F-Engrave is a text to g-code program that is written in python and is based on the text engraving software (engrave-11) available in the LinuxCNCKnowledgeBase.

F-Engrave

The name F-Engrave is simply the predecessor programs name "engrave" with an "F" slapped on to indicate that the program can perform more formating functions like justification (left, right and center) and text on a circle. When I first released the program I had no idea I was going to add v-carving or DXF features so the name does not reflect any of those features. F-Engrave is a free open source program released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) Version 3. There is not much left of the original engrave-11 script but I needed a jumping off point. One of the things that remained intact for the most part is the CXF font reading. Changes in Version 1.30 - When importing DXF files F-Engrave no longer relies on the direction of the loop (clockwise/counterclockwise) to determines which side to cut.

Changes in Version 1.31. Letter stencil maker. NEMES Home Page. Untitled Page. iModela iM-01 milling machine from Cool Components. This isn't a 3D printer, in fact, quite the reverse - It's a milling machine, and creates objects, by cutting material away rather than adding material.

iModela iM-01 milling machine from Cool Components

We're stocking it, because you can use the iModela to create printed circuit boards without etching, but it can be used for a whole lot more! The iM-01 is a cute thing the size and shape of an old fashioned toaster. It's truly desktop, and connects via the free software to your PC. It has a small movable platform onto which you place your copper clad PCB, or block of wood, plastic, plaster, or whatever. At the top of the machine there's a rapidly spinning cutting bit which can move up and down. Desktop sized Can be used to cut 'isolation track' PCBs with additional bitEasy to move - comes with rugged travel case Free, easy to use PC software Made by Japanese company Roland 12 month return to base warranty Specs Not included : PCB cutting bit.
