My name is Ignacio Garrido. I write this blog to share some of my tales in electronics, robotics and metalworking. I hope you enjoy some of this stuff.

    Thank you for sharing your work. I’ve read through all your posts and am facinated by what you did. Hope to see more new posts soon.

    Wow thank you for sharing what you have done. I want to make some gears for my robots. I am curious why you did not use rotary table to make gear. I see that you use Taig lathe spindle with stepper motor. I did not like Sherline gear cutter. I was thinking to make one just like what you have done.

      Well, I didn’t use the rotary table because I didn’t have one at that time. The taig headstock plus dovetail cost 69.25, while the Sherline cnc rotary table plus vertical mount cost 395, so it was a cheaper alternative (at least to me). The taig headstock can be rotated in the vertical axis, allowing you to make bevel gears; the “sherline way” requires the tilting angle plate for this, adding 110. Also my setup it’s lighter, easier and faster to prepare (9 vs. 3 screws to mount). The drawbacks are less rigidity and that you can’t mill while the spindle it’s rotating, but for making small gears works great.
