Today, sick as I am, I milled a 16 diametral pitch , 20 tooth 14-1/2 pressure angle involute gear out of flat aluminum.
Exciting, huh? I even milled a second and they mesh perfectly. Wow, my life is EXTREME!
It took 12 minutes to mill it out with a 1/16" two flute endmill running at 10K rpm and a feed rate of 5 inches per minute.

Other than the profoundity of gear milling, today has just been a day of snot and aches.
It has been raining for the past month and a half. I ad-oregon!
