Yesterday, I stumbled across this nice litte machine:

is a casting kit for a gear hobber out of M.E.

Well, I'm a bit "handicaped", because I have just a single copy of M.E. (and not the right one) Has anybody some information about what kind of gears this machine can make? Sizes (diameter from/to)? Kind of gears (plain, conical, spur(?)) Any experiences about accuracy, quality, usability, flexibility, ...?

I bet that it could be changed to produce metric gears and also to use different gears than the ones from a Myford (that I have neither).

It is not that I need it desperatly right now. But it looks like I would want to need it. :-)

Thanks, Nick

Construction of this kit, plus other matters related was discussed in MEW round about July 99.
