Instructions - Gear Cutter

Model six in the machine shop series is the biggest of the lot so far, at nearly double the piece and step count of the lathe. Its a big gear cutter based loosely on the Fellows 6A model following a recommendation from a member of the Practical Machinist forums.

I’m really proud of this one, it combines a lot of the techniques from the other models and definitely has a presence in the workshop! There’s a few places where bars have to be threaded through bricks in the name of stability, and you’ll also need to separate another steering wheel piece. Once built, its solid as a rock.

New tool day!

If you’d like to build this model, there’s full PDF and parts list here or you can now find the instructions for this and my other machine tool models on Rebrickable.

And don’t forget, I post updates most days over on my Instagram @nwbricks.
