I’ve joined a few different woodworking sites and enjoy reading the advice others more talented than I gladly give out. Somewhere I came across a neat little gear design program and saved it in my “favorites” on my laptop. Well, the laptop’s motherboard finally went to motherboard Heven and I can’t for the life of me find that little program. I can’t even remember which fourm I was on. Does anyone know what gear design program I’m refering to? (IABGO)

I like the woodgears program and have used it to generate profiles for wooden clock gears. It is quick and easy to use.

There is another new gear program that is supposedly really good. Check out http://gearotic.com/index.html

It is written by Art Fenerty, the same guy that wrote the original Mach program for CNC control. The cost is $75 for the full version, but there is a demo version with a free download.
