Need a circle or gear program for puzzle box design

Hey, so I have an idea for a puzzle box I'm hoping to design but I'm having a few issues with calculations. I basically need to have very accurate circles and angles, and I know even if I figure out the algorithms and don't bugger them up, I'm not sure I trust my hands enough to draw out the steady lines. Does anyone know of any graphic or computer programs that can draw out requested circles or shapes? I can add a sketch of the designs to this thread later if that will help?

I believe woodgears.ca has gear template making program. I have no idea if it works well or not, but you could try it out and let us know.
