Gear-Cutting Machinery, Vol. 1

Excerpt from Gear-Cutting Machinery, Vol. 1: Comprising a Complete Review of Contemporary, American and European Practice Together With a Logical Classification and Explanation of the Principles Involved The author undertakes, in this book, to present a complete review of the present state of the art in the field of gear-cutting machinery. He aims to illustrate and describe every important contemporary design, whether of American or European origin. The book deals with the underlying principles involved, and the general features of the mechanisms described; it does not concern itself particularly with those details of construction which are common to all machine tools, of whatever type. The discussion is closely confined, also, to present day machines and methods, references to earlier practice being made only in cases where that practice conceals the germ of possible future development. The arrangement of the subject matter follows the classification set forth in the opening chapter. That is to say, the machines are described in the order determined - first, by the form of gear each is designed to cut; next, by the principle of action involved; next, by the method of operation employed; then by the kind of mechanism used; and, finally, by the structural design of the machine. In every case particular stress is laid on the underlying principles on which the mechanism operates. The book is believed to be unique in the thoroughness with which it treats of a given form of machine tool. This thoroughness will be invaluable to the shop manager, foreman or operator whose work requires him to keep fully informed as to developments in gear-cutting machinery. Great pains have been taken to explain in a simple but adequate way the underlying principles of the different mechanisms, and the intelligent machinist will have no difficulty in comprehending them.
