Here is a spreadsheet I built to design bevel gears using the parallel depth
method. I've tried a number of combinations and it seems to work just
fine. I haven't cut any gears yet, once I get out of the armchair and
into the shed, that's next.

If anyone has time to look through this and see if anything is broken that would be great.

I've an article on parallel depth method recommending two cut's, but Ivan Law recommends three - are there any significant benefits of three cuts over two?

Regards

Steve
