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, Ivan Law, demonstrate gear-cutting techniques at exhibitions throughout Britain, where his advice on engineering matters is constantly sought. With 12 insightful chapters on tooth forms and sizes, rack and pinion gears, bevel wheels, worm gears, and more, Gears & Gear Cutting for Home Machinists is thoughtfully illustrated with technical diagrams and photographs.

George Bulliss, The Home Shop Machinist magazine
"Whether in the repair and maintenance of old machinery or working on scale models, the model engineer will eventually deal with gears and gear trains. Turning to the usual shop references often causes more confusion than enlightenment, with basic information hard to find among the numerous formulas and cryptic-looking charts. Long considered a must-have book for anyone contemplating projects involving gears, Gears and Gear Cutting for Home Machinists provides a clear and easy-to-follow guide for the hobbyist. Covering everything from the basics of gear identification and their operating principles to the actual cutting of the gears, the book presents its subjects in the context of the home machinist's needs and resources. No machinist's library is complete without this one!"
