Thanks for the data, Drew. That combo for a G&E is a new variation (to me), so if you don't mind I'd like to add it to the FAQ list. Just let me know if that's Ok with you.
Nothing wrong with old school - I used to do that until I wrote a quicky program so the secretary could do gear sets for helicals on non-differential hobbers. CPC-HOB grew out of that! Then, I discovered differential-equipped hobbers and things got even simpler - or did they?
Now, I'm looking at possibly automating tangential feed and hob shifting on differential hobbers as a new CPC-HOB feature. I'm trying to find a common approach that can be used for all hobbers (or most at least).
Didn't plan to get off subject. Just wanted to agree with you that your numbers may be just the combo that Ernest is looking for.
