    Would like to find information on cutting wood clock gears. Have the ability to cut the teeth but there has to be some magic numbers as how high or low from the center the first cut has to be. Can't find the correct information in the machinery's handbook. Any old editions on this subject would be very helpful. Thanks, Carl in NC.

    None of the standard references on gearing will be of help here. I think this was covered in an old issue of the Cogcounter's Journal but can't remember if it has been digitized yet. You should consider joining the chapter, the Journals are a treasure trove of wood works information and the people are good bunch.
    Also, I believe George Bruno covered this in his plans for the standard Terry shelf movement, available at the American Clock and Watch Museum.
