ok after working with the software I realize that it doesn't do what i want, it's gear drawing features are very limited, probably because it's about mechanics, not graphics

i want to draw gears in a row (one a bit above/below the next) that look like these, with the same tooth appearance:

Serif's DrawPlus has some "auto shapes" that can be made into gears.  It's shareware, but they give away the older versions of their stuff free.

Sometimes in PC Utilities and other mags and sites, they'll have a slightly newer version for free...
