2nd Attempt at Making Plywood Gears

30 Jul , 2016  

Have not been to the cabin for a few weeks. There have been too many household projects that need to get done first. But, in between the daily chores, I’ve been messing around with gears made from plywood. Also wanted to incorporate more woodworking into the projects.
The plan for this project was to mount a large gear onto a wind turbine and then have a smaller gear attached to a DC motor. Hopefully, the wind turbine has enough torque to generate some decent power.
Below is a few pictures of drilling out the gear teeth. Might or might not work, but it’s fun to try.
