RE: Reproducing tiny plastic gears for vintage 'gear'
'home' 3d printers (meaning, any printer that costs less than a home Smile ) may be accurate enough to produce those tiny gears, but I don't think the material is strong enough to take the stresses. There are other options, however; places such as emachineshop.com will machine real involute gears for you out of the material of your choice. But before you do that... have you checked whether McMaster-Carr or MSCDirect carry the gears in the sizes you need? They are expensive, but definitely less expensive than having them machined.
