    I guess if you have a very precise caliper you can do the math and figure it out.

    OK – So what is Gear Pitch? Put simply, it is the size of the tooth on the gear. The standard accepted method for working this out is known as the pitch diameter and this, simply means by the number of teeth of a consistent form that may be accommodated on a ONE inch gear.
    Therefore a 64 pitch gear would have 64 teeth if the gear were 1” in diameter. Similarly an 80 pitch gear would have 80 teeth if that gear were 1” in diameter. It’s that simple. So basically, the higher the pitch number, the smaller / finer the form or shape of the gear tooth becomes.

    I have no idea if this is correct or not, don't quote me on it.
