Making Clock Wheel Cutters part 3

In the third video of the multi-video series on making clock wheel cutters William Porter continues his demonstration on making clock wheel cutters for cutting cycloidal clock pinions and clock wheels.
This video covers:

  • Explanation of the radial flank angle of a cycloid tooth.
  • How to arrive at this angle.
  • Description of his home made tool holding sine bar.
  • Why the sine bar is used rather than the lathe compound tool holder.
  • Set-up of the sine bar on the lathe using gauge blocks (Jo blocks) for machining the exact radial flank angle on the gear cutting tool.

This is the final and necessary “set-up” video leading into the fourth video where William begins machining the cutter. Don’t worry if you didn’t grasp everything that was covered in the previous videos as all of this technical stuff will become clear in the the upcoming fourth machining video.
