This is a true reuse recycle project which will come in handy for some future projects .
The gears as you see them are made from two layers of 3/4” plywood glued together and a strip of timing belt from a car engine that was going to the garbage .
The timing belt is bonded with GORILLA SUPER GLUE to the plywood hub .
These are some pics of how I made them .
I rough cut the discs on the band saw then sanded them to size checking the fit by wrapping the belt around the disc and sneaking up to the perfect fit .
I cut off a short section of the belt as a alignment piece and clamped at the joint .
The application for this according to my grandsons are for wheels on a tractor and on and on.
I can see this as a router lift application and a box joint jig indexing device .
I would like your thoughts on this and welcome any comments .
Have fun with this me and the boys sure have .
