Gearing Up: The Ins-and-Outs of Gears (taken from the Groschopp blog!)
Are all gears really alike? The answer is definitely no! There are four basic styles of gears.
Spur Gear: The spur gear has a helix angle of 0°
Helical Gear: This is an angle toothed gear. The angle can vary from application to application usually between 1°-45°.
Worm Gear: Worm gears are found in right angle gearboxes. These gears “turn a corner”
Bevel Gear: This gear tends to have a lower ratio and run at a higher efficiency than the worm gear.
