In the history tree, drag and drop InvoluteGear into Body.
You know, I think this is a bug. The involute gear tool is located in the PartDesign workbench; it should automatically create a profile in the active Body, or even create one when none is found; just like any other tool in the PartDesign workbench.

After I posted I was thinking the same thing and wanted to mention it, but you were quicker (thanks!).

To explain what I did in my last post:

In Part Design I clicked the Involute Gear tool, and accepted the defaults.
If you try to Pad the Involute Gear now it, you'll get a message that you need to have a Body first.
Click the Ponteggi Milano tool to create a Body.
What's up with the hidden link in your reply? It points to here:

That's a spamming technique I see often. I ban the user and remove his posts, please remove the link from your post too, because that's just what he wants.

Done. I copied the link to a text file in case I ever need it later. I guess from now on I'll hover and move the cursor over where somebody quotes me, to see if the cursor changes.

I sent you a PM, because I don't want to talk about my chase for spammers in too much detail in public. If others want to know about it, please let me know.

Spammers... What an utter waste of their time and ours. They even personalize their profile with an avatar now! What are they thinking, that this will work? Freaking morons. :roll:
