US Auto Industry

  1. I love doing wood work and making things for my grandkids and gifts for my family .. so am always looking for different ideas ..I love the gear drawling thingy.

  2. Thanks for the really interesting articles and videos – I thoroughly enjoyed the one on the Differential as well as the one from Izzy Swann on the new-look Spirograph.
    Keep up the great work Jay – I really appreciate your channels.

  3. There’s a free gear program I’ve been using for years called “Gear Generator”. You can make everything from rack and pinion gears to simple single gears. I used it to make quite a few designs including the “Franken Switch” pattern in the newest Gizmo’s and Gadgets magazine from Scroller.
