The number 116 Gleason machine is more rugged than the No. 16, so I've been told, and is capable of larger gearsets. Is the 16 capable of smaller gear sets than the 116? I don't know.
My recommendation on cutter blades and bodies is Ash Gear and Supply.
It may be that there are more No. 16's available than No. 116 machines, and for tool room use the 16 may be appropriate (pretty cool toolroom that has a spiral bevel generator!).
Now a plug from the shameless commerce division :^)
We have software to create summaries for both 16 and 116 machines. You may want to download the demo(s) from this web site. There is CPC-BV1 for No. 16 (intersecting axes only), CPC-HYP for both No. 16 and 116 hypoid (non-intersecting axes only), and CPC-FS does Fixed Setting summaries especially for No. 116 (intersecting axes only).
Okay, I know posting unsolicited advertising here is a no-no, but he asked about cutters and calculations, didn't he?
Hope others will weigh in on this topic -
