Full profile button cutter. By Clickspring. 3:05 video:
Yes I agree, but maybe that's why this channel is named Clic spring
It's for you to Clic many times ...
-That title might be thought of as some sort of a New Year's Quiz, but it's actually pretty explanatory,
IF you've seen (the late) John Stevenson's method of having two spaced, hardened buttons as a quick & dirty form tool
for turning and relieving a DIYed involute gear cutter (of your chosen # of T and its pitch/ Mod and PA).

PS: Personally I don't see myself "wasting time" at Clickspring's site, anytime. But to each his own I guess?

The guy is a wizard. And he shows how to do things quite well. He also knows how to show others how to do what he's doing.
Frank's a wizard, too, but he sometimes expects people to get how to do what he does when it is not obvious to those of us who are not wizards.
I've spent much of my spare time the past 7 years learning how to be a machinist. In a good week, I might get 5 or 6 hours of practice. 6X7X52=2184. That is the maximum time I could have effectively learning machining in the past 7 years. Assuming I got to go every possible day, every week of the year, for seven years. Not a good assumption. Minus a week of fall break, another of spring break, and two of winter break, sicknesses, too tired to go, etc. I've maybe got an actual 2000 hours. To become an expert, you need (so they say) 10,000 hours of practice. AFTER you know what you're doing, I believe. I ain't there yet, though my teacher says I'm becoming a decent machinist. I'm 66 years old. If I live to be 100, I might, maybe, possibly, get to do that 10,000 hours. Five years of 8-hour days, 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year, and I could have that 10,000 hours in. Sure I could!

Here is a gear being cut with a cutter made with the full profile button cutter tool, or perhaps the large button cutter tool. Lots of ways to do it. That particular channel is just short clips of various things. The main channel has the full procedures for smaller projects, and the series for larger ones. The Antikythera machine sequence, for example, starts with him making the tools a Greek mechanic/machinist would use to make the original of that machine, including the files used, back when that machine was created perhaps as early as 205BC.
And here is a preview of the Antikythera machine video set.

Ok I didn't know this channel. I guess the initial trouble is simply because the video has been posted out if its context.
