Your welcome, and thanks for all the detailed instructions and clear illustrations. It was a great learning
experience and lots of fun to draw the lines and circles and then figure the arcs from the intersections.
Some trail and error and error was also involved in the process.

If want to display Pitch Diameter or view Message box about largest bit
uncomment lines:
Pitch Diameter Message box
Gear_Maker_Mod 312 362
Gear_Maker_Int 313 367

If get circle around gear in Gear_Maker_Mod can be because tip of gear is becoming
too small. Can either decease Addendum Factor or decrease Backlash allowance.

Any progress in diagnosing why the gear maker int gadget produces two different results with the same input values depending on whether the job is in mm or in inches? See my post on that discrepency.

If using metric job need to enter Backlash allowance in metric so .01 in
inches would be .254 in metric job to get equivalent results.

My last post should be:
