I didn't go into much detail on making the gears in the video because
I already have another article and video on how to make gears.
How long does it take to build?
People often ask how long it takes to build something like this. I don't usually keep track of time, and I most certainly can't predict how long it takes you to build something. But looking at the timestamps of the video clips, I had four sessions of three hours each when I built the jig. Each video represents about three hours of shop time, including setting up the camera tripod, and lights for every step and checking the videos as I went along, sometimes repeating steps to get better video.
I was, however, already familiar with the plans and had built this same jig before, so that is an advantage I have over you.
That said, editing together a video always takes much longer than building the project.
