... ). The action between the mating teeth has a wedging effect, which results in sliding on tooth flanks. These gears have low load-carrying capacity, but are useful where shafts must rotate at an angle to each other. Worm-Gear Sets Worm-gear sets are usually right-angle drives consisting of a worm gear...
