I have been reading (on the net) about gear hobbing. Seems like the way to go for homeshop gear machining. I just saw a post claiming that miter gears can be hobbed too. I did not think that possible, then I thought that probably with a conical hob and some angle it could be possible.
Has anyone done that ? miter gears with a hob ? Any practical advice ?
BTW, for many interesting gear designs have a look at this, really neat:
The method used by the author in the two above sites is very simple. I will try it out in IRIT
and see if I can design and simulate a miter gear hobbing setup.
