The Simplicity of Equiangularity
Early in chapter 4, I said that that chapter might be omitted upon a first reading. I stand by that. From here on, however, reference back to specific items in chapter 4 will occur from time to time. Having noted the characterizing parameters C, Σ and k for a gear set of whatever kind in chapter 1, having established the fundamental law of gearing (a law for all gearing) in chapter 2, having studied the kinematics of spatial involute action in chapter 3, and having investigated for scientific reasons some key aspects of the geometry of pairs of hyperboloids sharing a common generator in chapter 4, we begin to study now, in this and the following chapters, the synthesis of offset skew involute teeth.
