So far I haven't broken any gears, but I also avoid using 8-toothed and half-width ones. Is it always good to avoid them, or can they be used successfully in some cases?
What about the worm gear? It generates a lot of friction, but also provides a lot of speed reduction. The alternative is using a lot of spur gears (especially when avoiding the 8 tooth gear); is that better?
