  • Learn the fundamentals needed to design your own gears and gear trains
  • Understand the complexity of gears and how to machine them, in a very clearly presented and easy to understand way
  • Plain, simple and non-technical language, with the mathematics kept to the simplest form
  • Information on tooth forms & sizes, rack & pinion gears, bevel wheels, making gear cutters, and more
  • Well-illustrated with concise technical diagrams and B&W photos

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.

This book offers practical, hands-on guidance for anyone who wants to design and cut their own gears on a lathe or milling machine. It teaches all of the fundamentals needed to understand gears and gear trains using plain, simple, non-technical language. The level of mathematics is kept down to its simplest and most accessible form. Packed with information on tooth forms and sizes, rack and pinion gears, bevel wheels, worm gears, making gear cutters, and more, Gears and Gear Cutting for Home Machinists is well illustrated with concise technical diagrams and photographs.
“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!”
—George Bulliss,
The Home Shop Machinist magazine

We are a father and son team that operate a 5,000 sq/ft metal machine and wood shop. We've had to design our own machines (including CNC), and fixtures for our wood working. We make some of the smallest most precise inlay in the world. We maintain tolerances of 0.0005" in a 12" strip of wood, and we have duck calls with over 1,100 pieces of wood in them.
