MakingGears • Gear cutting equipment • Preparing a gear blank • Gear involute cutters • Cutting a spur gear • Identify current gear uses • Apply gear knowledge to real situations
Diametral Pitch Diametral Pitch is the actual size of the gear tooth.The lower the number the larger the tooth.The chart at left shows 3 dp. as larger tooth and 20 dp as the smallest tooth. 3 dp 20 dp

Math Gear Calculations • 16 Diametral Pitch X 2 Inch Diameter Gear Blank Equals Number Of Teeth • N = D.P. X D.G. N = 16 X 2 N = 32 Teeth • 40 Turns Of The Dividing Head Hand Crank Equals 1 Revolution Of The Gear Blank • Turns = 40/32 = 10/8 = 5/4 = 1 And 1/4 Turns
Math Gear Calculations • Using a 20 hole plate 1/4 turn = 20/4 = 5 spaces or 6 holes in plate. This moves our gear blank 1 and 1/4 turns. • Outside diameter of gear = 32th + 2/16 =2.125 • Cutting depth for tooth = 2.250 a constant divided by d.P. • Depth = 2.250/16 = .140 thousands for depth of cut.
