Gears in one form or another are a part of most mechanisms, but they are by no means as simple as they appear. Gears & Gear Cutting for Home Machinists is a practical, hands-on guide for anyone who wants to cut gears inexpensively on a lathe or milling machine. This book teaches the fundamentals needed to design gears and gear trains using plain, simple, non-technical language that keeps the level of mathematics down to its simplest form. It covers all the questions raised by enthusiasts who have watched the author demonstrating gear-cutting techniques at exhibitions throughout Britain, where his advice on engineering matters is constantly sought. With information on tooth forms & sizes, rack & pinion gears, bevel wheels, making gear cutters, and more, Gears & Gear Cutting for Home Machinists is well illustrated with concise technical diagrams and photographs.
