    What's the difference? They both sound like the same process to me, albeit one, gearcutting, could be done manually. They could both use the same cutters, or the CNC could use a smaller cutter and just follow the tooth pattern.

    Not a machinist, I've just spent too many hours looking around at the different machining practices, trying to learn.

    Im not sure myself. I just know cycle dynamics use a gear cutting tool and boone uses cnc.

    it looks like that thing rotates to cut them ?

    The hob CD uses is the traditional way to cut gears, it's the "manual" way I was talking about. Although, it can be, and is also done "CNC". "CNC" can control almost anything. I don't think you'd be able to tell a difference between either cog/chainwheel performance wise.
