Last time I used it it sounded like it was stripping teeth and I had to help it close. Are you currently able to produce the gears if they are sent to you?
I will announce when I get some batches ready.
I am not currently taking orders. The availability is there, yes. I can make them, yes.
Just not yet.

ViperVenom has sold these gears made from abs plastic from a 3d printer. It costs like 35$ after a core return or something like that. Search for the thread, should come up.

That plastic is cheap and will break again and again if you try and glue it together. Doesnt make sense to fab teeth yourself inaccurately and takes 40hrs. Dont spend 400$ to get a custom made set from germany that you have to wait 6 months for.

They are already here, I need them myself.

They are made of nylon 66 with 30% glass fiber fill, not ABS. The 3d printed versions never worked. Too weak.
I offered injection molded nylon derived from my 3d printed design for $35. Plus $30 core. Your gears or bushings will get you the 30 refunded. Or send yours in first.

I'd be glad to help you out Andrew.

Yeah, I took it down because I stopped production. I'm trying to develop metal gears.

definitely let us know if you make the metal gears, you plan on cnc milled or sintered?

Yep. The sintering process uses super fine metal dust. Its sifted into the cavity (negative) and pressed under extreme pressure with a male of the cavity. After being ejected, its sent to an oven to be cured for several hours at a temp just below molten point, then slowly cooled as to not warp or crack.
