stock miter and bevel gears are specifically designed for
the efficient transmission of power and motion between intersecting
shafts at a right angle (90°). Miter gears are a special
type of bevel gear designed to operate in pairs with identical
numbers of teeth and diametral pitches, and a 1:1 ratio.
Other Boston Gear stock bevel gears sets are available with
ratios from 1-1/2:1 to 6:1.
All Boston Gear standard stock bevels and miters are manufactured
with a 20° pressure angle and are produced in accordance
with AGMA specifications for long and short gear and pinion
addendum systems to reduce the amount of pinion tooth undercut
and to nearly equalize the strength and durability of the
gear and pinion. Our straight tooth bevel and miter gears
have generated teeth with Coniflex® tooth form. Our
spiral bevel and miter gears have an overlapping tooth
action that results in a smoother, quieter gear action,
as well as a higher load capacity than a straight tooth
gear of equal size.
