Well, it was more of a question to myself than a answer. I'm sure it's pretty tough to do. I personally have not made aluminum bent up gear so I said that with lack of experience.Maybe for you. For me, I ended up contracting the bending, the heat treating, and the shotpeening... See http://www.homebuiltairplanes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8344&page=2, post 17 for my history in doing spring gear. I want to hear all the details on how you do it, because it has to be less fuss than mine.
