Welcome aboard Otto!

There is no one right answer to your question. A good place to start is the Tip on making a click assembly I published in my monthly newsletter: January 2011 Eclectic Angler Newsletter - scroll down to the tip.

Click wheels can be made out of Delrin, brass, or steel. A simple 60° triangular tooth shape works well. Also see Dave's great blog, he has a few posts on click drags.
