Dividing Heads/Plates

>Was wondering if you all would help me out with a technical issue.
I naievely searched for the above before asking and am not the answer.

I need to be able to cut splines/teeth on a wooden gear (similar to segmenting- 36, 48, 62 teeth etc.) depending on the spec requirements.

Could anyone suggest how I would be able to do this with high accuracy? Need to do this as inexpensively, and simply as possible with a "few accurate jigs"....... is this possible.

Understand divider heads, etc - expensive & slow... Any other methods of work, or tricks???

Thank you for your commentary!
Greg
