    Does Anyone Make Hobby Precision Worm Gears?

    Does anyone on CNC Zone happen to make precision Worm Gears in 4" and 6" sizes for standard off the shelf worms or can also make the matching worms. Materials of interest are bronze or aluminum with 180 or 360 teeth.

    I am interested in purchasing 1 or 2 pieces for testing.

    Edward R Byers Co in Barstow, Ca makes worm gears for telescope drives. These would be fairly fine pitch in high tooth numbers intended for one revolution per day but if you can contact them, they may make anything custom.
    First you get good, then you get fast. Then grouchiness sets in.

    (Note: The opinions expressed in this post are my own and are not necessarily those of CNCzone and its management)

    Yes I am aware of Byers however they are priced well out my budget for what I want to do. I am hoping to find someone that has precision equipment to make these in their small shop versus going with a large company.
