The article "Cutting Worm Gears with Standard Gear Hobs" appeared in the January/February 1994 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
We make a lot of single-start worm and worm gear sets, and it always seems as though we're buying another special hob. We also do a lot of spur gear cutting, and the spur gear hobs and the worm gear hobs look alike, so we wonder why we cannot use the standard hobs for cutting worm gears too. Can we do this?
