As I mentioned in an older thread, I have a couple of 100 year old windmill gears to replace or fix. In the past, I have always brazed up teeth and then recut with a gear cutter on my mill. Brazing that up is a PITA on this coarse of a gear. And since it is a very coarse gear, I don't usually completely fill the space between the teeth. This creates a very interrupted cut when milling (which is rough on my smallish mill). So the thought crossed my mind ... since brazing rod is brass or bronze, I wonder if I couldn't pour brass or bronze right around the gear. This would infill all the teeth and give a nice uninterrupted cut when milling. Obviously, the gear would need to be: preheated well fluxed quickly put into a mold and poured Any thoughts? Obviously with the cold and snow, my mind is already wondering towards next spring, LOL.
