A friend of mine needed these ratchet stops for a quilting rack she was making. This is my first attempt at gears of any kind. Hardest part was figuring how to cut the slots for the bolt to tighten on shaft. The darker gear on right is the pattern.

Made them from popular.

Good job on those cogs. I had made blanks for a rack we saw in Shipshewana and then my wife decided against quilting, so they never got done like yours.
Good job on those slots. how did you cut them in there?

Thanks for the comments.

First one I used a forsner bit to drill out the slot then chiseled out the excess. Then I decided to try the router table. Almost messed up one but finally figured it out. Much easier with router table now that I know what to do but I probably won’t ever make another so I will probably forget how I did it. Haaa Haaa

Man that is good work. What kind of blade are you using on the scrollsaw?

To tell you the truth I don’t remember which blade I used. All I rem is it was a rather fine apposed tooth blade.
