Hiya Folks,

For an upcoming project of mine I need to determine whether a gearing mechanism will work.

Currently I have a 21 tooth gear (I believe 72DP or ~0.35Mod) mating with a 0.3mod worm.

Long story short, I want to know if I can mate a 0.3mod gear with a 0.4mod gear

Is it possible or will it just lead to premature gear wear??

Cheers
Chick

Will not work! Gears must be of the same DP and also the same MOD. You will have to look for a gear box that will fit your locomotive.
