    Having just found out all my hard work has created problems for myself.
    I have decided to try and get some tips and tricks from the experts.

    Now it appears that wood is suitable as a bearing surface, do not use brass on brass bearings.

    What is the best wood to use?

    How does one reduce the possibility of grain fracture in the gear teeth?

    Only the working face is important, the back (unused) part of the tooth can be recessed to eliminate binding or clashing during meshing

    Please add to this list, any help will save many hours of frustrating fiddling and may save the life of a few clock works.
