I'm new to using gimp 2 and so far I've been having fun using it~

I just want to ask if there's a way to add customized shapes in gimp 2. Specifically the cogs and gears shapes.

I've tried google but my searching skills are waaayyy too poor or I

thanks in advance~

To generate your gears. Not really worth time investing more in this kind of stuff unless your engineering a solution in which case your not using gimp anyway.
