    I want to build a simple clock of gears.
    How I can build a simple gear at home.
    Thank you...

    You can scribe a gear (straight cut teeth) on a piece of brass. Use a hacksaw to cut off the bulk of the material, a drill to bore out the shaft hole, and then a file to shave everything down to the final shape. Very time consuming, but it will work non the less.
