Extract from back cover of book:

Gears in one form or another are a part of most mechanisms, but they are by no means as simple as they appear. This book explains simply, clearly and comprehensively the underlying theory involved and, in its second part, how to cut gears on a lathe or milling machine. It covers all the questions raised by enthusiasts who have watched the author, Ivan Law, demonstrating gear cutting techniques at exhibitions throughout Britain, where his advice on engineering matters is constantly sought.
