I'd urge anyone doing this sort of thing to incorporate some hand-work into it --- V-carve the names by hand, do some sort of engraving or inlay into the voids, try something new and interesting for the key design, &c.

I used inventors spur gear generator. I had to trace and paste some of the teeth on one side of the outer planetary gear. I couldn't figure out how to get teeth on both side with that generator.

Also, I was going to do some engraving, but ran out of time... Still might do it some other time though.
