I have two bevel small (POM) gears that I'd like to test. I'm hoping to test their strength and their maximum torque. One is 15-tooth and is around 16MM wide and the other is 45-tooth and is around 46MM wide.
Does anyone know of a good, simple way for building a rig that hold these gears (and their 6MM shafts) in place in order for the test to take place? Would it be a good idea to just use 3 timbre boards and screw them together? Something like this
where the boards are held by screws. Would this suffice?
