      My knowledge of foreign lathes is they are 50 cycle (Hz) motors. Apply 60 Hz to a 50 and you will be 60/50 times faster. Power is about the same, but the current in the windings is lower - Higher frequency means higher reactance on the same coil. Love the gears...

                              Nice explanation, you may have changed my mind on making my own gears. Thank you. Do you have any experience cutting Nylon gears with 30% glass fill? I have an electric car project where I'll be using these gears. I've saved this video to watch again 👍

                                  What about a reverse rotary broach (like a socket) that could cut all the teeth on a gear simultaneously? Is that a thing?

                                            I was always slightly interested in machining because of my mild steel fabrication background and always thought I was out of my depth trying to learn. I honestly found this inspiring to pursue it in further education and found this very digestible and easy to watch and glad I just found your channel. Look forward to binging your content tonight.

                                              Have acquired a moriseiki lathe. Needs a new rack, and drive gear. Teeth broken and worn down on the old one. New rack is over 2000.00 dollars. Is there a good way to make a new one. Somebody made the originals. Help. If you respond I will provide email address.

                                                  I knew that with a rack [ (.)(.) ] the teeth have straight sides. I figured out, correctly, that an internal gear has teeth with concave sides and then saw one and it was confirmed.

My gear-making class was kind of trashy, when we were to use the dividing head, the teacher just said "just turn it 1full turn + 18 holes on the 33 marker until the gear is done" but didn't explain why. In 10 second you did.
