They fit. just not cleanly. You have to alternate pegs or flip every other gear. Plus the pegs break relatively easy it seems.

If you can find one of the old RACEtech pinion racks, they are molded out of plastic and you can snap off every other pin to fit large ones. Wish I still had the original molds that were sold with the company back in '98 as it would be easy to modify it.

+1 on the Dynamite one. I have two, one for 24-40 or so and the other has my 45-58 or so.

The material is ABS. It was shot out of a 3D printer. After doing the solid modeling, it was as easy as hitting "print" and then waiting a few hours. I no longer have access to a free 3D printer anymore

Bummer, that is probably the nicest and most practical pinion holder I've ever seen. Hopefully someone will "borrow" or license your idea and start producing them accepting up to 65T.

You know, that looks real close to a school pencil holder with that draw lid that is also a ruler, just slip a slim slice of foam in there with holes cut to fit the gears!! Should be deep enough.

My solution was to cut a few lengths of carbon 1/8" rod, and drill some holes in a strip of maple. Not pretty, but it cost next to nothing and does the job.
Same idea different materials. I made one of 1/8 brass rod from Home Depot and scrap plexiglass about a 1/4 in think. Fits nice in the partioned parts box.
