Anodized aluminum vs brass in small gearing applications?



(-----) 2006

Hi, I am in great need of some information about using anodized aluminum gears in small machinery vs using brass gears.

Which of the two would have the highest wear resistance? Which would tend to have the best durability over the long run?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Anodized aluminum is good for a lot of things, but I would stick with brass if I had a choice.
