How did you model the double helix gear? Yours runs so smoothly.

It took some tweaking and in this case better lucky than good (although some design experience helped).

I just modeled a helix then cut and mirrored it.

I uploaded some links to my website that I used for inspiration (check out the Machinist's forum for some good info and also the YouTube playlist for ideas)
