    What are you gonna be using it for? You can buy super cheap cogs from your LBS, well most i would say. Cheap as in $5-10 at most.

    First: I agree with tajcrews, buying a cog is likely your best bet.

    With that said- most modern cogs are made on computer controlled milling machines like this:
