Gear Cutting II, Helical Gears

  • J. R. Colbourne


We showed in Chapter 14 that two helical gears mounted on parallel axes can mesh correctly together, provided their normal base pitches and transverse base pitches are equal. We can therefore use a helical pinion cutter to cut helical gears, and the normal base pitch and the transverse base pitch of the gear will then be equal to those of the cutter.
