Absolutely no experience with timing pulleys here :-), and of course from that 
perspective it's always "how hard can it be?"

No cnc abuse in this video just a lot of old British iron, but where do you get 
the tooth profiles from? "You can see the belt manufactures details or get the 
profile for the cutter by curving the belt to the required diameter.?" (from 
the comments below the video)

This fellow just drilled some holes, but since he glibly points out that in his 
case it was pure math to decide drill size and spacing, it *must* be OK.

I posted this without a thought to the serious matter at hand, and just hope it
