Helical Gears - Ivan Law

Ivan Law published a set of revised gear cutter buttons in Model Engineer June 1990. In the article he mentioned he omitted the cutting of Helical Gears from his book 'Gears and Gear Cutting'. There is hint in the article of the possibility of further articles on the subject of helical gears in ME. Does anyone have an references to further articles on Helical Gear cutting?

Thank you in advance.

There is quite a lot of data in Machinery's handbook (at least in my

13th edition). I think you have to let us know a little more about what you want to do and what equipment you have to do it on. I have done some of these on home workshop equipment, but they are not easy and you wqill make scrap to begin with!. If I can help further, please contact me Peter

You need the Brown and Sharp book Practical Treatise on Gearing.
