I've been looking for a spiralled bevel gear cutter for years. This is just another disappointment.

This may make me look stupid but I'm not a machinist. WTF is a spiral gear cutter Planalp? Not trying to hijack as I think the mods deserve a lot of thanks and praise but just curious.

Actually, I was being sarcastic because I couldn't figure out why a spammer would bring up something so off-the-wall, as if people on this forum would be interested in acquiring a spiral bevel gear cutter.

I'd never heard of one either, but here 'ya go: something every KLR rider needs in the shop/garage:

A spiral bevel gear is the type of gear you will find in an automotive differential.


I axed that spammer. There was another one this morning offering hair extensions. Most of you guys are probably follicley challenged so he got axed too.


On a hair note. Ever watch the movie with Chris Rock called Good Hair?? Was there ever an enlightening movie on the hair business particularly as it relates to black woman. Talk about high maintenance.

I wondered about it but it never even registered....I thought it best to not start up anything so early here, maybe it was a member and trying to do some extra sales work....what a dumby I am!!!

Should have also noted good job to the moderators. I can count the times on one hand that I've ever even noticed any spam posts on this site and they weren't there very long before they were dealt with.
