In Topic: Aquatica Gear pitch

No I have not used one before.

I found out about them from a presentation at our U/W photo club.  The presenter has used them.

Back ground info: I ran a large gear manufacturing company for three years and do have some insight into gearing.

Think about how much pressure you would have to exert to deform a plastic gear tooth and think about how much force is requires to turn a lens ring.

If interested, pm me and I'll put you in touch with the guy who presented at our club.

Camera gearing is not a high speed or torque application!

Easy way:



Shim up the id to get gear tooth engagement.

don't sweat the pitch or tooth profile; very low rotational resistance.
