I have built the electronics and part of the mechanics for a better one with
the idea of selling it.
wrote a short article to aid stepper motor
should I use it for manufacturing something else?
Hi Larry. Knowing what I know these days, *I* would tend to purchase a small CNC
desktop lathe or mill machine (such as Sherline,
Taig, etc.) to do gear cutting. But if gear cutting is *all* someone is
interested in, then your design might be worthwhile. My
advice to you - based on my very recent experience - is to make only a few at a
time and see how they sell - don't spend money on
tons of parts and equipment until you've established that there is a viable
market for the product. I'm discovering that a small
portion of my recent offerings seems to have a much bigger demand than my
original full product.
Also, it looks like you have everything you really need to create a CNC retrofit
kit for small desktop machines, so that might be
a possibility, too.
Asking questions like you are doing here is an important first step! Keep it up!
Best of luck !
